Subtropico invests in businesses that can deliver superior earnings and dividend growth over the long term. This involves the acquisition of meaningful interests in companies that have sound management and the ability to generate strong cash returns and growth.
At Subtropico we empower the management by giving them the assets to manage and we allow them the freedom, responsibility and authority to make their own operational decisions. Above all, they are made properly accountable for achieving these things within the framework of a decentralised, yet accountable, environment.
Management is encouraged to take up significant equity interests in the businesses they manage to ensure that they act as shareholders and operate in line with our company's objectives and philosophy. We offer them the incentives, guidance, inputs and focus to encourage them and we forge strategic alliances to add value to the business of investees where possible.
