The Fund will operate with a generalist focus and strategy, one designed to seize the market opportunities and to fully leverage the expertise and experience of The Fund Manager Team.

Outside of these industries, the Fund will seek to exploit opportunities to make investments in attractive businesses where it finds an attractive entry price, a strong management team it can partner with, an investment structure that offers on-going liquidity, and significant upside potential at exit. Such businesses will then be provided with investment capital and deep value-add support from the Fund Manager Team.
The Fund will seek to make investments that have the potential for delivering a minimum target net annualized IRR of 20%. To achieve this objective, the Fund will focus its efforts on identifying high-quality, SME businesses with strong management teams, which are revenue generating and have potential for growth and profitability.
The Fund’s principal investment objective is to maximize investment return to investors over time via capital appreciation. The Fund will typically structure its investments so as to deliver on-going liquidity through the life of each investment by way of consistent and periodic interest and/or dividend payments as well as a potential for significant upsides at the exit of the investment.
