Silverstone Group business strategy focuses its proprietary, specialist resources within its three industry sectors. Our objective is to originate investments with the potential to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors. The essential elements of this approach are as follows:
Silverstone Group focuses on larger scale investments in assets that provide essential services, have high barriers to entry and offer significant governance positions. We primarily target opportunities in OECD countries, while maintaining a global perspective and the flexibility to pursue high quality assets with the potential for attractive risk-adjusted returns in selected non-OECD countries.
Silverstone Group in-depth knowledge of, and extensive relationships in, our three target industry sectors is critical to our ability to originate proprietary transactions, conduct effective and informed due diligence, structure investments and identify potential exits. This knowledge provides insights into the trends and developments that create investment opportunities and motivate potential sellers and joint venture partners. In addition, our relationships with significant industry participants, together with our track record of adding value to our portfolio companies and our ability to deploy significant amounts of capital, have made Silverstone Group a preferred buyer and investment partner.
Silverstone Group takes a conservative approach to leverage and ensures that our investments have appropriate risk profiles. This approach also reflects our fundamental view that investment discipline and operational value creation, rather than financial engineering, are the keys to successful infrastructure investing.
