Holistic Health

A balanced approach to healing the mind, body, and spirit using both conventional and alternative treatment techniques.

Organic Agriculture

A production system that prioritizes the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on biodiversity and ecological processes adapted to local conditions, rather than inputs with adverse effects.

Sustainable Infrastructure

The designing, building and operating of structural elements in ways that maintain and enhance both natural and human systems. Social, economic and ecological processes are honored equally.

Ecotourism

Allowing people to experience nature in a way that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and incorporates interpretation and education.

Community Development

The organization, education and empowerment of people within their communities. Be it urban or rural, community development promotes participative democracy, sustainable development, economic opportunity and social justice.

Investment Style & Approach

Sector Focus

We target a limited number of sectors to ensure a balance of industry focus and risk diversification. Each of our funds is tailored to specific industries, with dedicated governance boards and specialist advisory councils comprising industry experts. Opportunities are sourced through extensive industry research that identifies supply-demand imbalanced scenarios, and screened through appropriate levels of due-diligence. Projects are ultimately selected where our investment criteria are met.

Structural Alignment

For each project, Manton adopts a preferred capital structure and comprehensive performance-based incentives for management, resulting in the structural alignment of all participants. Our structures are premised on the core principles of motivational psychology. We believe that investment performance is underpinned by effective working relationships.

Activist Management

Manton's key personnel participate directly in each investment across the organizational and project governance frameworks. We have a thorough understanding of the strategic drivers and operations of each of our portfolio companies. While we seek to create value through transferring our capabilities, our ultimate aim is the build enduring relationships that transcend the investment cycle.

Systems Development

Due to Manton's focus on early stage investing, significant resources are applied to systems development underpinned by cloud-based technology as a key element of the de-risking process. Manton maintains strategic relationships with Microsoft, Adobe and Autodesk, and adopts as policy a world class integrated management system providing assurance to the ISO9000 and IFRS series of standards.
