OUR APPROACH

Cordiant is a partner-owned, partner-run firm specialising in sector-focused investing in “Infrastructure & Real Assets 2.0”.

The sectors that embody a fast-evolving economy, economic opportunity and the challenges of sustainability and Net Zero. These sectors are:  

  • Digital Infrastructure
  • Renewable Energy infrastructure
  • Agriculture Value Chain  

Cordiant focuses on investment opportunities in these sectors though both private equity and private debt funds. It does so on a global basis.  

At the time of writing Cordiant-managed funds had committed capital approaching $US 3 billion.  

Cordiant has specific digital, renewable, agriculture and private credit teams. Each team combines seasoned senior industry executives and experienced private capital investors. Cordiant also has a dedicated Responsible Investing team, which is fully integrated into the investment decision-making of each group.  

The firm has an investing focus on middle-market, growth capital opportunities.  

This allows Cordiant to focus on generating IRR and MOIC for investors by backing growth (including buy-and-build strategies) and improvements in investee company operations. Cordiant is typically a hands-on investor and relies on proprietary origination for a considerable proportion of its investment opportunities.  

Since 2015-2016, when Cordiant was acquired by the current partner group, the firm has cultivated a track record of exceeding mandated target returns. Whilst focused on the investment opportunities of today and the future, the firm has a distinctly old-fashioned partnership culture: the partners are directly aligned with investors both financially and reputationally.

RESPONSIBLE INVESTING

 

“Industry Expertise + Mid-Market + Responsible Investing”

Cordiant’s client base consists of institutional investors for whom we seek to deliver added value through:

This allows Cordiant to be a more credible provider of growth capital (whether equity or debt) because we have the hands-on industry knowledge to help companies grow and evolve.    
  • operating experience that is reinforced by individuals skilled at investing in private markets  
  • a focus on middle market companies that offers the opportunity to generate return through capital expenditures on new assets, improved operations, higher margins and multiple expansion (as platforms grow in size)    
  • a strong focus on responsible investing (encompassing sustainability, ESG, impact investing and a focus on supporting Net Zero goals). Cordiant has a long track record in responsible investing–having been an early signatory of the U.N. PRI and a founding signatory of the Impact Principles–and has a particular focus on Net Zero and sustainable approaches to agriculture. As a firm, we remain intent on seeking practical and measurable results.
