Strategic planning, forward thinking, proactive sourcing, due diligence, negotiation, and ownership are critical drivers of our investment success.

Decades of experience of our Board of Directors and Management Team in financial services guides our investment selection, evaluation and structuring.

Our investment team uses its collective expertise to identify attractive opportunities and leverages its global network of partners to source proprietary investments in mature undermanaged or distressed companies. The Firm’s expertise in key industry sectors has made Xstrata a sought after partner for industry leaders and often positions us on the “short list” of desired investors in strategic situations requiring capital.

Xstrata seeks to evaluate project investment opportunities with agility and efficiency, quickly honing in on the most significant issues in the due diligence process.

When negotiating transactions, we seek to structure investments in projects to maximize governance, legal, and economic protections, utilizing a variety of risk-mitigation strategies including S&P or similar certifications.

Xstrata actively partners with the management of our portfolio companies, rolling up our sleeves to identify and execute on strategies to increase the value of our portfolio companies.

We understand that creating real value in companies takes time, often several years. We seek to long-hold our investments and are determined to optimize value for our limited partners, taking into account the interests of all stakeholders.
