Power Corporation, through its alternative asset investment platforms (investment platforms), is developing alternative asset management businesses which build upon the investment capabilities that have been created over many years in several high-growth asset classes. The investment platforms are focused on growing their asset management businesses through raising third-party capital and the Corporation intends to continue to provide proprietary capital to the different investment products managed by each of the investment platforms.
Since the launch of the first Sagard fund in Europe in 2002, Power Corporation has continued to develop investment platforms that manage portfolios in several alternative asset classes in three principal geographies: Europe, North America, and China. Traditional long-term investment strategies generally invest in publicly traded shares and fixed income investments, whereas the alternative asset strategies include venture capital, private equity, private credit as well as real estate and infrastructure. The investment platforms Sagard and Power Sustainable are managed locally by experienced investment professionals who have an in-depth knowledge of the local markets and benefit from collaboration within the Power group of companies.
Power Corporation’s investment platforms seek to generate attractive returns for their investors by: i) attracting experienced investment teams to execute on investment strategies where the investment platforms’ ecosystem gives them a competitive advantage; ii) leveraging the global network created over decades by the Power group to drive the commercial success of their investment strategies and underlying investments; and iii) providing flexible capital solutions to solve a range of business and financing needs.
