Our Investment Philosophy
57 Stars invests through private equity and venture capital fund partnerships, co-investments and secondary acquisitions in high-growth sectors of the global economy that are driven by secular tailwinds, disruptive forces and technological innovation, adaption, and adoption. 57 Stars investment strategy applies a thematic investment approach, identifying powerful macro-level trends and sourcing investments that stand to benefit from the materialization of those trends in key economic sectors.
In addition, the firm has pursued structured transactions, co-investments with high upside potential, and opportunistic secondaries to create a more resilient portfolio with an aim to reduce J-curve.
Having formally integrated ESG into our diligence process more than a decade ago, we are continuously striving to improve our approach to employing ESG best practices across our investment process. To this end, we have developed a comprehensive Environmental & Social Management System (“ESMS”) and ESG policy, and have devoted significant resources to expanding our ability to conduct due diligence, monitor, and report on ESG and impact metrics.
