Metier's approach to fund management emphasises transformation, capturing quality deal flow in the black empowerment space. We consider the private equity funding model an ideal financing vehicle for BEE as it is not only transparent, but achieves the transfer of ownership and control as well as economic value and skills to previously disadvantaged investors and entrepreneurs.
Of particular importance is the view that transformation is an imperative in the long term national interest of South Africa. We have adopted the attitude that our endeavours will target return-based objectives in combination with a commitment to improving governance, environmental, empowerment and social investment imperatives that make our investments sustainable.
Internally, Metier employs and trains young talent, building not only our in-house capacity, but contributing to the development of the next generation of investment professionals. Our development plan focuses on providing experience, offering financial assistance for further study and opportunities for career development within the firm.
