Through our venture fund, we invest in start-up businesses on a yearly basis. Contact is made via the Youngtrepreneurs business pitch competition. The competition is open to aspiring entrepreneurs aged 16–30, and gives participants the opportunity to pitch an idea, be partnered with a mentor, and, ultimately, to win up to £10,000 investment to start their business.
We also scout for investment opportunities in business ventures that have synergy with our existing portfolio or where there is a clear value we can add to the venture.
We believe that investing in a diversified set of assets is the best way to generate superior long-term returns. Our asset allocation primarily falls within these four asset classes:
The core tenets of our philosophy are:
Value Then Growth
we combine the discipline of a value investor with the imagination of a growth investor. This approach controls risk, while capturing the significant growth potential of undiscovered small companies.
The Importance of Risk Control
our approach demands a margin of safety before we invest. We believe that preservation of capital is the essential component of durable long-term investment success.
we seek to build an information edge by performing thorough, fundamental research.
Our Start-Up Investment Philosophy:
We look for businesses with the following characteristics:
- A business we can understand, and that has a sustainable model and an existing cash flow.
- A business with committed and passionate founder(s).
- A business with significant barriers to entry, recurring cash flows, and high returns on invested capital.
- A predictable business in which the past is a reasonable guide to the future. We ask: is technology disrupting, helping, or hindering?
- A business that serves a purpose and creates a win-win for all stakeholders, including customers, employees, and shareholders.
