We address global challenges

The next decade faces major challenges: from technology integrating itself into every aspect of how every industry operates, to environment changes and climate imperatives. As a PRI signatory we are committed to responsible investment to tackle these global challenges.


Diversity drives our performance

Diverse people bring diverse experience, which in turn, brings the diverse approaches you need to solve tough problems. We are committed to building a hybrid investment and technology firm that will help rework and reskill businesses, so that they can be relied upon for future livelihoods


Always learning at light speed

Data is most valuable, not as a piece of singular analysis, but as a feedback loop. The most important investment we make in a business is embedding the capability to learn faster and the culture to apply new knowledge quickly and repeatedly.

Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context – a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment.
