MULTI-FACETED VALUE CREATION
At Meridian Capital Limited we believe that CAPITAL is a powerful catalyst that can create growth in a business and
the environment in which it operates, resulting in multi-faceted value creation.
We believe in three fundamental pillars that lay the foundation for value creation:
1) financial capital (INVEST),
2) intellectual capital (INNOVATE) and
3) social & environmental capital (IMPACT).
Financial capital facilitates growth and value creation. Whether through deleveraging, geographic or physical expansion, operational improvements aimed at increasing revenues or margins, skilful and targeted investing lies at the heart of our philosophy. Knowing where and what to invest in, ensures that capital is used effectively to promote growth and generate increased returns.
Innovation and creating distinct competitive advantage is key to driving industry leadership in any category of business. Our teams actively seek out new opportunities and drive strategic initiatives that spur growth.
Financial gain without social impact does not lead to long-term, sustainable change. We actively seek to create programs that have a positive result in our operating environments, and demonstrate our ecological and environmental responsibility. In all our endeavours, we actively seek to create change through generating employment, supporting communities and individuals and caring for the environment.
“To truly unlock the latent potential of a business, financial investment is only one facet; for leadership, one should equally seek stand-out innovations or differentiation relative to competitors; and for sustainable advantage and long-term growth, one should look at how those investments can make an impact in the world. However, we go further and look for investments that also have an “X-Factor” that has the capacity to provide a multiplier in terms of returns. Strategically we have also taken a view not to invest in “vice” – tobacco, gambling or the like.” – Askar Alshinbayev, Principal
