Antarctica Capital’s primary objective is to offer investors access to transaction opportunities that are either off-market or require a particular set of expertise and relationships not readily available to others. The investment focus has been to target strong assets that can withstand market downturns, facilitate asset-liability matching, and provide attractive risk-adjusted returns. We benefit from having a global perspective, with offices across three continents, and strong local knowledge of and execution capabilities in our target geographies that enable us to opportunistically source transactions.
Antarctica’s investment approach emphasizes deep knowledge of industry and target company dynamics, conviction around specific trends and / or market dislocations, and the pursuit of catalyst-driven market opportunities. This often leads us toward overlooked companies and asset classes that can be enhanced through operational transformation or consolidation strategies. We are further driven by an absolute return focus, which leads us to rigorously evaluate and build conviction around idiosyncratic investment opportunities, and create value through the implementation of our investment strategies, such as SARO™ and SIGA™.
Antarctica Capital strongly believes in an “owner/operator” approach to our investments. We are a control investor, and from the time of close we remain heavily involved and embedded in shaping the direction and transformation of portfolio companies and assets. Our emphasis on implementing our investment strategy, instilling strong oversight, financial discipline, capital optimization, operational and IT consulting, and optimization of talent and labor, helps to maximize value through the investment lifecycle.
