We have identified energy and resources, real estate and hospitality, and infrastructure as target sectors where we have unique advantages in generating extraordinary returns, while improving lives.
The advancement of civilization is built upon the intelligent use of energy and resources to re-shape the world around us. The search to produce energy and resources is a capital-intensive, high-risk endeavor, in which we cannot afford to relent.
We view infrastructure as the link that connects markets, people, resources, cultures and ideas. Transportation, telecommunication, sanitation and utilities enable our daily lives and empower the human race to channel our ingenuity to solve challenges.
The developing world is home to the majority of the world’s population. Urbanization, supported by investments in infrastructure, will better connect the developing world to the rest of the global village and tap the latent human energies and talents of these countries. Infrastructure investments in the developing world require a vast amount of capital and carry complex political, social, environmental and financial risks that pose challenges to governments and investors.
The developed world has mature infrastructure which may require restoration and enhancement. These activities can form engines for growth and lay the foundations to elevate the rate of growth for developed economies.
The growth of the global population and quest for better standards of living create enormous demand for new cities, townships and homes.
We recognize that land resources are limited and that the need for food production, recreation and housing must be balanced against the need to preserve natural environments and native ecosystems.
