Our work is much bigger than us—our future depends on a higher level of commitment and a new approach to investing with the strength to increase opportunity while decreasing impact on natural resources. A future of smarter investments that cross borders and complex environments to create lasting outcomes. Our work takes more than investment expertise, it takes unparalleled leadership with the will to go the distance and the heart to make it matter.
Global leadership in investment banking, funds management and strategic advisory.
We believe in the power and potential of underserved markets. Markets where incredible need is balanced by outsized opportunity. We go farther to invest in global impact through companies and technologies that can best solve the problems of pollution, climate change, and shortages of food, water, and energy. We are committed to confronting these global challenges and investing in more sustainable outcomes.
