Investment Philosophy

We identify and invest in companies with high potential but with bottlenecks, where if we remove these hindrances to progress, and realign the management focus on key value parameters we are able to increase the intrinsic value of portfolio companies.

  • 1. We invest in overlooked and undervalued companies with unexploited business potential across various industries in Japan.
  • 2. A mutual relationship built on trust with the management of a portfolio company is a prerequisite of our investment.
  • 3. We fully support management of portfolio companies in improving their operational performance with hands-on assistance,
       and we do not use financial leverage which burdens portfolio companies.
  • 4. We look for equity investment values that have the potential to increase 5 X within 5 years.
  • 5. We seriously care about our social responsibility to satisfy all stakeholders of our investment.
