GMT seeks to invest with management teams and entrepreneurs who share its philosophy and approach to value creation
GMT seeks to invest in companies with strong, experienced management teams. Its evaluation of potential investments places particular emphasis on the experience, track record, commitment and integrity of the management team. It also determines whether the management team is complete and, where necessary, uses its network of advisor contacts to source high calibre executives. GMT feels that it is important to align the interests of management with those of GMT, by ensuring that key managers have long term financial incentives, as well as a personal financial commitment to the enterprise.
As GMT looks for businesses that are at an inflexion point in their development, the strategic and operational plans often change, and may give rise to a number of organic growth opportunities, such as new product development and adoption of new technologies, product pricing initiatives, customer upselling and/or regional/global expansion. GMT, together with its network of industry advisors, leads and supports management across the portfolio in implementing these initiatives and gets involved from an early-stage in the strategy for the roll-out of new digital technologies and product diversification.
