We take a private equity approach to public market investing either taking large minority stakes in listed businesses, or taking listed businesses private. Our returns are rooted in driving transformational changes – typically through operational changes, acceleration of growth or via M&A – which we achieve by joining the Board and/or taking executive positions in our portfolio companies. To date, the strategy has delivered 40%+ IRRs consistently over 18 years.
