Investment Philosophy

Investment Philosophy

The investment philosophy of Sustainable Capital states that the sustainability performance of countries and companies is fundamentally linked to long-term investment returns, yet inefficiently priced by African financial markets.

Unlike traditional asset managers, who focus solely on financial information in the determination of fair value, at Sustainable Capital we believe that by combining rigorous fundamental investment research with detailed investigations into material sustainability factors, we can determine a better reflection of a company's true long-term value. In essence we include assessments often ignored by investment managers (sustainability factors) and incorporate these factors into traditional valuation techniques. We believe that by assessing, and pricing, these risks and opportunities Sustainable Capital will deliver higher long-term risk-adjusted returns to investors.
