Asset-backed in mega-trends
At SMG, we believe that the future of investing lies in companies that are aligned with mega-trends that promote sustainability and decarbonization of the economy. That's why we specialize in asset-backed plays falling within the ESG-compliant domain of the decarbonization of economy mega-trend, including natural capital, carbon credit trading, energy infrastructure (solar, wind, hydro), and first-tier supply of battery minerals.
Our investment approach is focused on identifying private companies with attractive growth prospects, long-term competitive advantages, and the ability to generate superior returns. We work closely with portfolio companies' management teams over the long term to increase their productivity, competitiveness, and profitability. Our goal is to generate value for our investors while supporting companies that are making a positive impact on the world.
While we typically hold our investments for around five years, the portfolio companies we invest in have a predictable cash flow in a much longer horizon of 10 to 30 years. We prioritize investing in companies that are committed to sustainability and have a positive impact on the environment.
At SMG we have direct trading lines with over 140 leading financial institutions, including banks, pension funds, insurance groups, asset management, and wealth management companies. This allows us to provide our clients with access to unique investment opportunities and exceptional returns.
