Investment philosophy

Our team has a differentiated mix of experience. And we believe in collaborating with both our investees and our clients, aiming to build robust foundations both for our investments and also for relationships that will continue over the long term.

We believe in the transformative, potentially exponential, power of innovation in business. We will look for companies where there are favorable conditions for these phenomena to materialize, and we demand of ourselves that we should also incorporate similar innovations in our business.

In this infinite, reiterative game of asset management, where discipline in analysis, and execution, will always be essential elements for consistent success, we see ourselves as a new beginning.
