All investments
have an impact

We are a boutique Asset Management Firm striving to aim higher with our investment strategy and impact. With over 45 years of combined experience in Financial, Corporate and Private Equity sectors, we are committed to joining forces with investors who seek social and environmental change.
About us

With extensive expertise on both the sell and buy-side, our collective track record ranges from highly complex financing transactions, IPOs, and Privatisations to corporate management, deal structuring, and execution. Our 4 founding partners have held top management positions in first-tier entities such as Credit Suisse, Société Generale, Galp, and EDP. Furthermore, our highly-qualified team has also a track record in Private Equity across various industries such as FMCG, Logistics, Education, and Real Estate.

Aim higher. For our people. For our planet.

After decades in the industry, we chose to pursue a more meaningful success - to drive superior performance while being a positive contributor to society. We will harness increasing investor appetite for opportunities that generate social and environmental impact.

It all begins with
curiosity.
