• General Industrials

    Over the years, we have built real industry knowledge and expertise in specific industrial subsectors such as Building Materials, Packaging, Automotive and Chemicals.

     

    Value creation stories revolve around a number of themes: investing in niche markets under-exploited by competitors, pursuing a consolidation strategy, and re-energising non-core assets acquired from large industrial companies.
