Our investment team are highly skilled in areas of public and private companies, corporate strategy, business optimisation, transaction advice and management. Where we choose to invest with third-party managers, we may place funds either directly with the third-party managers in our role as limited partners, or we may hire them to manage our capital in a separately managed account in vehicles that are operated by K+P Investment Office. K+P Investment Office will carefully curate a portfolio of third-party managers to provide diversity across strategies, asset classes and geographies. Where we engage with third-party managers, K+P Investment Office grants full trading discretion and authority to these managers, and focuses on monitoring performance and risk limits.
