Market Share Driven
We recognize a positive correlation between market share and valuation through various studies. Our investment strategy is therefore anchored around a long-term market share focus, not driven by short-term trends. We look at overall sector growth and evaluate the market position of high-quality, global companies.
We are providing private equity and debt to develop best-in-class global companies from the greenfield stage. Notably through strategic collaborations among our portfolio companies, we support them to outperform competition and reach their full potential.
Further to attractive financial returns over the cycle, our capitals must have a positive impact on society at large. This could include support of the green transition, ed-tech, rennovation and upcycle eco-system opportunities.
Multi Strategy comprised a broad mix of long short, global macro, trend follow, and event driven investments. We aim to capture market upside with different investment styles and geographies, while mitigating the downside through our comprehensive research on seasonality patterns, predictable price moves around major economic events.
Numbers of current portfolio companies are 26. IPG including its management provide long-term capital and operational expertise. We play a vital role in helping its portfolio companies to reach their full growth potential.
