Investment Philosophy, Criteria & Ethics

Industry agnostic

The continuous acceleration of innovation cycles makes it difficult to obtain superior returns by specialising in one industry/technology which could be disrupted in the medium-term. Entrepreneurs are now capable of innovating and creating important value in any industry faster than ever, and we work with industry, technology and scientific experts to effectively evaluate these aspects in potential portfolio companies.

Early commercial stage

We acquire minority shareholdings in Start-ups with a strong innovative component in their early commercial stages. This allows us to take part in transactions with moderate valuations and significant short to mid-term appreciation potential, while eliminating important product, market and execution risks through a thorough analysis of business metrics, personal and commercial due diligence, among others.

Team excellence, alignment and ethics

We are constantly searching for executive teams with proven execution abilities, that are inherently motivated to achieve customer excellence, generate further business opportunities and a positive impact on Society. Once invested, we work to ensure that they are as aligned as possible with the shareholders of the company and other stakeholders.

Common criteria for investment opportunities shared:

  • Minimum of 6-12 months’ commercial track record and a clear commercial strategy
  • 5X minimum profitability potential within an investment horizon of 3 to 5 years
  • High business defensibility and scalability potential through innovation
  • Private funding requirements of between € 250,000 and € 2,000,000

Ethics Framework

We pride ourselves in providing excellent service and results for our Partners and work every day to align ourselves fully with their interests, convinced of the positive social and economic impact we generate together: Partners, Entrepreneurs and Faraday.

We strive to maintain the highest possible standards of ethics, transparency and professionalism and adhere to the CFA Institute’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct when working in the interest of our Partners.

Faraday is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment, incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors in our investment and management decisions to enhance returns and better manage risk in the long-term in the interest of our Partners.

Portfolio & Exits

We have a solid track record since our inception and have been able to generate consistent superior returns for our Partners in our 8-year history, both through secondary trades and company sales to industrial acquirers.
