Our vision is to invest in companies that "make the right thing to do, the easy thing to do", and in doing so, make the world a better place, for all.

The global economy seems to be based on the idea that people must continuously purchase more and more “things”

they do not really need.

We believe in investing behind human needs, and not needless things; that investments must support a rationalization of consumption.

We believe that the good of the many and the planet must be inherent in profit making.

We invest in products and services that cover 21st century human needs.

What are 21st
Century Human Needs?

Our investments will include:

21st Century Human Needs are not the same as Basic Human needs.  They are an evolution on what humanity needs to exist and to thrive in the 21st century.  However, we will never invest in a company that makes or sells a product or service that is an “unnecessary luxury”.  We believe that, in the long term, the global business model must change to "less is more": people buying less, based on their real needs, but better - for them, for others and the planet.

Food

Transportation

is a 21st century basic human need.

Telecommunications

6

The world needs energy. We will only invest in companies that seek to make energy 100% sustainable.

7

Other 21st century human needs

We will consider investments in hospitality, healthcare, medicine, etc. as long as they adhere to our 3 basic priciples.

“Humble" Capitalism

The idea that the creation of "good" for people and the planet is inherent in the creation of profit in business.

"Good"?

What trully makes the lives of people better, and improves the well-being of our planet.

Profit

We believe that if a product or service has the creation of "Good" at its core, then it will be adopted by many, and financial profit will ensue.
