GSE Capital, has studied the market and sees the mismatch between financial support, the real economy needs and what the equity markets are delivering. GSE Capital cannot ignore the issue of global climate change and social responsibility.
The impact of environmental and social consideration has a direct effect on financial performance and market growth. We take it in consideration in our partnerships and investments.
What differentiates us from many other investment funds, is the holistic view we take to include all stakeholders in the process of funding; GSE Capital, the owners and potential impact in the projects we support.
Our philosophy is clear - a large part of our investments is given to philanthropy and project funding.
Our funding structure is also different, as we invest our own funds. The approval and decision process is carried out internally by our team of experts. There are no other funding groups involved and we are independent without any potential influence from external sources.
We have an agenda which meets the needs of real economy, and its most important part - the social and environmental benefits of each project in which we invest.
We set an agenda for change and invite those in the economy to work with us to meet the needs to achieve a more sustainable future.
We make investments in activities and companies believed to have a positive social impact. Positive investing pushes the idea of sustainability, not just in the narrow environmental or humanitarian sense, but also in the sense of a company's long-term potential to compete and succeed.
We actively seek to place capital in businesses and funds that combine financial and social returns. These businesses can thus provide social or environmental impact at a scale that purely philanthropic interventions usually cannot reach. This capital may be in a range of forms including equity, debt, working capital lines of credit, and loan guarantees. Our philosophy is to invest in companies today who can provide a return on investment in the short to medium term. This return will then form the funding for further investments in the years to come. This strategy ensures GSE Capital always invests it’s own money and is not dependent on outside donators such as banks ; private or government. In this way GSE Capital will remain apolitical and independent.
GSE Capital specializes on the following general area of Investment:
