Strategy

We define our investment strategy as a savvy and diversified investments on the sharp edge of the Financials and Technology sectors moving into the future.
Technology applied to financial services (Fintech) has a significant impact on our daily lives, from facilitating payments for goods and services to providing the infrastructure essential to the operation of the world’s financial institutions.

Global Fintech is currently energised by the cumulative effect of digital connectivity, customer dissatisfaction with banks, and a lack of innovation and investment by incumbent providers, according to recent paper from EY.

Digital connectivity

Smartphone and internet penetration have revolutionized consumer connectivity allowing consumers and businesses to connect in ways previously unimagined.
Many of these connections have financial components.
We spot the markets with the highest levels of internet and mobile phone penetration globally, highest e-commerce spend and is a leaders in online access to financial services.

Economic downturn

Consumer sentiment plummeted post-crisis globally and has continued to remain low in the developed markets, while recovering in separate regions.
This has created an environment whereby consumer is open to adopting new business models and products from new providers.
At the same time, the crisis has meant incumbent institutions have failed to invest in technology and innovation.

Regulatory changes

A range of new regulation introduced in recent years has prompted financial services industry players to monitor their activities more stringently.
This, in turn, has created demand for a range of new and innovative solutions.
