Investment Strategy

Real Estate investment strategy

Blue Horizon will seek to deploy and manage real estate assets in the major European, North American and Asian markets. The group is sector agnostic and will consider opportunities across the spectrum of real estate assets where they deliver good, risk appropriate, long term cash flows, with the prospect of some capital upside. In terms of risk, Blue Horizon remains on the lower end of the risk curve, investing in core or core plus assets. The group will take direct holdings where it has experience of the local market, otherwise it will invest indirectly through funds or other vehicles in non-core markets. The investment strategy is usually to buy and hold although assets can and will be exited should appropriate opportunities arise.

Financial Markets investment strategy

Blue Horizon invests in public markets instruments across asset classes, geographies and sectors. The group follows a multi-strategy approach combining elements of general macro and relative value.

Private Markets investment strategy

Blue Horizon invests in Private Markets funds across strategies, geographies and sectors (excluding Oil & Gas). The group follows a thematic approach based on market conditions. Blue Horizon also invests directly in companies through the acquisition of minority stakes.

Venture Capital investment strategy

Blue Horizon invests in emerging science and technology companies, visionary founders and transformational technologies creating solutions to global problems. We provide patient, flexible and strategic capital from Series A onwards. Blue Horizon also invests in deeptech focused VC funds.
