Value-Added, Operational Focus
We hand-pick management teams who are qualified to execute the strategic plan we develop in order to create value for our investors. We actively manage our assets and businesses alongside management teams to execute growth strategies and generate efficiencies. We expect our portfolio companies to create a culture that prioritizes safety and a rewarding work environment for all employees, while executing on a plan of growth, cost competitiveness, and long-term profitability. We don’t turn over the keys to our portfolio company management teams; instead, we look to actively partner with them on all critical strategic, financial, and operational decisions.
Critical to our infrastructure investment focus are strategies designed to protect the downside of our investments, even if that means sacrificing some upside return potential. We emphasize contracts, hedges and other cash flow enhancing strategies in conjunction with a measured use of portfolio company leverage to create an overall investment portfolio with an appropriate risk profile for the returns we target. In addition, we believe that a prudent portfolio construction is one where investments are not all correlated to the same events, providing additional protection against downside market scenarios.
