At Foresight, our vision is focused on the future.
That means spotting opportunities ahead of the crowd; it means being flexible; it means being innovative; it means being fast and clear in our decision making; it means applying the expertise of our people to solve problems, to overcome obstacles, to push deals across the line.
We describe this as investing for a smarter future. It is the "why" that surrounds everthing we do, as we continuously search for ways to create a better, smarter future for the world in which we live.
Our values, outlined below, equip us with the tools and attitudes we need to see this vision through to fruition; delivering value for our investors and leaving our footprint on the world around us.
With a 30+ year pedigree in institutional investment, we constantly think ahead and focus on what’s coming to ensure we continue to deliver attractive returns for our investors. Our infrastructure investments are helping to solve some of the major energy infrastructure challenges around the world in markets that include renewable energy generation, storage and distribution, waste management and energy efficiency. Our SME investments are helping to grow the UK economy by promoting growth, innovation and productivity in fast growing small businesses across the country, creating jobs and stimulating economic activity within the regions.
The diversity of experience and skills within our investment teams gives us a deep understanding of the intricacies and complexities that influence the sectors in which we operate. Over time we have established extensive networks of advisers, developers, contractors, investors and regulators, and work collaboratively to deliver solutions that benefit all parties.
Giving up is not in our nature, and we work hard with our partners and investee companies to effect real change. We continuously deploy our extensive expertise, knowledge and ingenuity to overcome obstacles, resolve issues and challenge the status quo. Our long-term strategic approach minimises deflection from short term influences and keeps us resilient to challenges and responsive to change.
We don’t do things by halves. We offer the full services expected by leading institutional investors, with high-quality back office functions, experienced asset management and investor relations teams and the highest standards of corporate governance. Our teams operate with professional commitment and perseverance and leave no stone unturned in pursuit of delivering lasting value for our investors.
We listen to our investors and are open-minded and receptive to change. We are able to respond quickly and nimbly to changes in the marketplace or regulation, with transferable skills and multi-sector experience. Our flexible structure means we can identify opportunities and bring innovative products to market swiftly to meet the needs of our investors and to stimulate growth in our markets. We are the antithesis of a large inflexible corporation stifled by bureaucracy and “the way things have always been done”.
We’re optimistic, engaging and committed in the way we conduct business. We encourage new ideas and work with passion and vigour to bring them to market, always searching for new opportunities. We think fast, act decisively and appropriately and know what is needed to make things happen. We feel strongly about the impact our investments have on our investors, partners, colleagues and the world in which we live.
