Purpose of the Trust
The objective is to secure and grow the wealth of current and future generations of our family and direct relations; hence the time-horizon for investments is long.
The portfolio is focussed on capital growth, while at the same time optimising risk to avoid permanent loss of capital and ensuring long term capital preservation.
Core Investment Themes
Most of our direct portfolio investments and supported projects involve Internet or information technology applied to solve important problems.
Some of our focus areas include:
Internet, cloud and mobile
Financial services and payments
Healthcare and well-being
B2B Internet services
Wide global spread including developing markets
Socially Responsible Investment
We invest primarily in projects with a social benefit beyond pure commercial returns.
Skills and expertise
Shin Ryoku and the group companies bring quite a wide-ranging collection of tools and experience to tackle neglected and difficult problems. In particular, we have deep experience with Internet, information technology and communications and have successfully applied this knowledge in practical business situations across very different markets globally.
While Internet often plays a part in our solutions and portfolio companies, we also bring knowledge of financial markets, professional management, intellectual property, entrepreneurship, cross-cultural experience, virtual teams, and creativity in our approach to problem-solving.
The Trust and its portfolio companies have successfully delivered services in over 75 countries.
