Playing a vital role in helping companies realise their true potential, we uncover value by identifying and enhancing their performance by providing human capital and technology focus as core themes, amongst other important factors. Our approach helps our portfolio companies grow core businesses, launch new initiatives, make transformative acquisitions and upgrade technologies and systems to support their long-term strategy.

We provide more than just capital. We seek to make the companies we invest in stronger through a top-down strategy. We bring expertise of our Advisory Group to provide strategic guidance on a variety of operational improvements, including revenue growth, procurement, leadership development, lean process and technology, sustainability, human capital factors etc.

Creating Impact

We strive to create value by investing in businesses where our capital, relationships, operational support and strategic insight can unlock a company’s potential. In addition to benefiting our investors, the improvements in growth and competitiveness benefit workers, communities and other stakeholders at large.

We are long-term investors who practice the art value creation and committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for our businesses and our investors. It takes time to realise value creation from our principal core themes in human capital and/or technology, especially in the emerging markets.

Advising the CFI funds to which our investors have committed, understanding what investors are looking for from their investment and working with them to provide enhanced returns drives the CFI’s strategy and that of the Investor Relations team.

The Investor Relations (IR) team places significant emphasis on two key areas: relationship development and investor communication. The primary principle applied across both areas is to be transparent, by providing detailed and frequent information through formal and informal communication channels strictly to our investors.

Relationship Development

The IR team manages a thorough relationship development programme ensuring our investors receive relevant updates and information on opportunities to invest in CFI’s fund, as well as providing access to senior investment professionals across the firm.

Investor Communications

The IR team advises CFI fund on communications with our investors. This includes bi-annual reports and activity updates on significant events such as new investments or exits of existing portfolio companies. Formal reporting is sent directly to investors and there is also a secure Extranet providing online access to financial, legal and reporting information for investors.
