When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen
– Ernest Hemingway
The principals of Afinishay have worked closely with pension funds and other Institutional investors for over twenty years and, throughout this time, we have listened carefully to their evolving needs and objectives.
Foremost among these, remains to invest in opportunities that have superior risk-adjusted return profiles and provide effective portfolio diversification.
Afinishay sources niche, and often difficult-to-access, investment strategies, with experienced management teams and compelling business models, that match each investor’s principal investment criteria.
As a matter of course, Afinishay only represents managers who offer investors:
- Better aligned compensation models that reward success
- Stronger governance with increased investor oversight
- Decision-making guided by ESG & SRI considerations, and
- Potential to make a positive economic and social impact
We advise managers on structuring and then make targeted introductions to institutional investors actively seeking to invest in such strategies. A two-step process that first makes a strategy investable and then provides the capital needed to transform a business.
To ensure that our interests are equally aligned with all parties, Afinishay is always compensated by the manager and primarily by compensation tied to the success of the strategy.
Capital isn’t scarce; Vision is.
– Sam Walton
