CEO & Founder
Fio Business Specialists are dedicated to assisting you to operate your business with precision. We’ll work with you directly, exploring your business model and accompanying strategies to determine if they are on track to meet your short, medium and long-term goals.
We focus on analysing and extrapolating the areas of your business that are performing well, and those which could benefit from services including, but not limited to; coaching, business analysis, start-up incubation and if necessary, business ICU and recovery.
Our team of hand-picked industry experts have a host of proven tools and systems that make decisions easier and wealth management less intimidating.
As a global private investment company our purpose is to grow our economies by investing in entrepreneurial business opportunities and projects within our core industries of expertise. The financial well-being of our people, stakeholders and shareholders are important to us and this governs our investment policies. As a fiduciary to investors and a leading provider of financial technology solutions, our clients turn to us for the solutions they need when planning their financial goals.
Sharing ideas and intellectual capital across the firm provides us with distinctive insight and this cross-platform leverage enables us to bring the right capital solutions to compelling opportunities. More than 75% of our partners have made investments across more than one platform. We call this approach “shared teams and shared themes” and we build it into our culture by having open investment committees that can be attended by professionals from all platforms, products and levels of seniority.
Our Capital platform primarily creates control-oriented private equity investments. We pursue opportunities across geographies and specialise in sectors where we have developed unique expertise over time. These include impact investing, venture capital and private equity. Our investments help support the development of innovative technologies and new business models, as well as promote sustainable economic growth and development.
Our goal is to address pressing social and environmental challenges in the communities we serve, such as climate change, poverty and inequality. We are all about finding a balance between financial return and positive impact, and investing in businesses that have the potential to create lasting change in the world.
