Principles of Investment

Our Aim – Realising Sustainable Values 

ThomasLloyd makes Investments today for the benefit of future generations, protecting natural resources with ethical and ecological values and providing infrastructure assets for a sustainable future.

Investment Philosophy

  • New opportunities begin with solid partnerships.
  • Build the business on integrity and honesty and in compliance with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements in order to enhance our reputation.
  • Ensure through an entrepreneurial compensation model our people think and act like owners.
  • Maintain an open exchange of information with all stakeholders.
  • Ideas are not enough for the implementation of successful investments.
  • We believe our preparedness and execution skill sets setting us apart.
  • Seek profitability rather than growth, as the mere size does not necessarily add value.

Investment Guidelines

  • Invest where our money makes the difference.
  • Invest where we possess competitive advantages.
  • Recognize that superior returns often require contrarian thinking.
  • Sacrifice short-term profit to achieve long-term capital appreciation.
  • Measure success over the long term by total return of capital.
  • Encourage calculated risks, but compare returns with risk.
As a private sector, mission-driven, global investment and advisory firm ThomasLloyd specializes in investment solutions that both deliver financial returns and create a positive social and/or environmental impact.
