While every family has its own distinct story, they all share pivotal moments that form part of their family lore, be that recently or in the distant past. Pioneering paths taken, times of triumph, and sometimes tough choices taken.
What makes our family unique is our combined global business experience, our individual areas of specialism, our loyalty, and our resounding commitment to finding solutions.read more
We see the corporate world slightly differently and we know markets do too. We pursue value arbitrage opportunities, where there is a value dislocation.
We invest proprietary capital quickly to special situations. We are versatile and fit anywhere in the capitalization table - securitized debt or equity. We enter situations, understand them rapidly, and make entrepreneurial solutions happen.
We deploy our capital and know-how on assets and sectors we deeply understand. Our sectors of particular expertise are real estate, technology, hospitality and financial services.
Trust and loyalty are two of the most important elements in business,
and there is no greater trust or loyalty than with your family.
The modern business world requires fleet of foot and clever solutions, rather than repeating strategies or easy options merely because they are familiar
Entrepreneurial solutions are at the heart of what we do. We do not want to sit benignly on assets. We add value and solve commercial problems
We pride ourselves on imaginative corporate thinking. We value challenges because they produce innovations
Whilst solving commercial challenges is what we do best, we want our legacy to go beyond just profit. Our medium-term intention is to add a charitable foundation to our model
Loyalty to our clients is the value we consider most important

At the heart of any business is people. As a family office, we instinctively understand and complement each other. We are kindred entrepreneurial spirits and have honed our respective skills in a way that only families can.
