Capital that makes a difference

[btn link=”/#wwd”]About us[/btn]

We are a different kind of investment firm

We partner with exceptional management teams who believe, like us, that business and investment can help to resolve our biggest social and environmental challenges.

Since 2002, we have shown that finding solutions to these challenges can unlock a substantial commercial opportunity. Our capital – financial, human and intellectual – helps our partners to realise this huge potential.

Across our platform of funds, we are committed to providing capital that makes a difference – to our partners and to the wider world.

Where challenge meets opportunity

Since 2002, we’ve proved through our investments that a focus on tackling big societal challenges creates commercial value. It helps to find opportunities that others might miss. It helps to build better relationships with staff, customers and other key stakeholders. And it helps to drive stronger, more sustainable performance.
