Goals and Values

Power of entrepreneurship to address the world’s greatest challenges

Capricorn believes in the power of entrepreneurship to address the world’s greatest challenges, and therefore seeks out partnerships with talented individuals creating innovative businesses and investment companies

Oriented toward earning superior risk-adjusted returns

The investment strategy seeks superior risk-adjusted returns by investing in and partnering with companies and managers which provide solutions to global problems. We employ a fundamental and long-term approach to identify investments across all asset classes which we believe have the potential for positive impact and high rates of return over many years.

Institutional capital toward sustainability-driven investments

We believe we can be a long term steward to our clients’ capital by continually striving to outperform market returns in addition to catalyzing the movement of institutional capital toward sustainability driven investments.

Rigorous standards of social and environmental performance

Capricorn is a Certified B Corporation and is committed to the most rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.

Our Approach

Capricorn’s core belief is that sustainable investment practices can enhance long-term risk-adjusted returns. We manage globally diversified long-term portfolios comprised of both external managers and direct investments across all asset classes, with sustainability integrated at the core of the investment process. In order to both meet return objectives and support the movement of capital into more sustainable investment strategies, we follow a disciplined and patient approach in sponsoring and creating new investment funds. We also make early investments into established managers addressing opportunities across the sustainable investment landscape.
