Our Vision

on

We have come a long way since the launch of our first Fund in August 2006, but for us it has always been about staying true to a simple vision: helping companies to grow in all business dimensions, including ensuring that our investees are leaders in the field of social and environmental responsibility.

We are driven by the challenge of channelling capital to the businesses that need it the most, in particular those small and medium sized companies within emerging economies that struggle access it. We believe that these will be the leaders of tomorrow.

Our Mission

on

We are an independent, alternative asset manager, authorized by FINMA and headquartered in Geneva (Switzerland). Since 2006 we strive to generate sustainable growth by structuring secure and efficient capital solutions, via collective and segregated investment vehicles.

The fund vehicles that we manage target developing economies worldwide to channel capital to local, non-speculative commodity value chain participants. We act as a catalyst for local growth, through which both the investor and the investee can benefit from tangible value creation and sustained performance.

For us, providing capital to commodity value chains is not about leveraging traders or speculators that bet on price volatility. We exclusively focus on supporting tangible actors of the real economy, which contribute to the growth of resilient value chains which positively impact their community.

Our Values

Our investments seek to contribute positive impacts towards the following sustainable development goals (SDGs):

  • home-slider-img-3

    Poverty alleviation: by providing capital to underserviced economies we strive to reduce poverty (SDG no.1)

  • home-slider-img-4

    Food security: by supporting agricultural value chains and local consumption we strive to reduce hunger (SDG no.2)

  • home-slider-img-5

    Environmental protection: by promoting environmentally respectful methods of production we strive to combat climate change (SDGs no.13 & 15)

  • home-slider-img-6

    Corporate governance: via active collaborations we strive to promote better practices and governance in the workplace (SDG no.8)
