Core is an independent and privately held firm. We are the investments arm of the Patel Family and don’t directly borrow or invest on behalf of the public. However, we believe our long term success is determined by our partnerships.
Core’s fundamental philosophy is that businesses are about people and that successful private investments starts and ends with successfully partnering the very best people.
At Core Investments, we categorise our business into three high level areas – Private Equity, Financial Markets, and Mezzanine Finance.
The objectives of all our business is simple – Identify, invest, and operate long term cash generative businesses which generate consistent cash flows to help meet our Social Responsibility obligations.
Our core belief is that there are a number of asset classes with attractive return prospects but different return drivers. We believe that combining these asset classes in a diversified portfolio results in the attractive returns coming through in a much more consistent fashion than any one asset class in isolation. This approach is very transparent, makes it easy to understand, and robust to differing market conditions.
A key aspect of delivering on this core philosophy is our ability to identify and access a broad range of asset classes. This is driven by the breadth and depth of resources we have across a range of investment specialisms. There are also many more asset classes available today - providing more opportunities to generate returns, reducing reliance on any one investment and benefiting from a lower expected volatility that can better navigate market turbulence.
