Principles


Global Reach
Across Industries

We deploy our private capital into higher risk opportunities offering strong riskadjusted returns around the world.

We often find opportunities in areas where institutional investors no longer show interest due to their ESG constraints, yet which are still vital for our economies. Our investments often enable the transition towards more sustainable future with zero carbon emissions in the long-term.

We are a long-term investor, we look for special situations such as shortage of capital, merchant exposure, need for restructuring or other unique opportunities, where we can deploy our funds, gain operational control and get actively involved or have a clear path to it.

We focus on operational improvements and strive to ensure a new strategy of sustainable growth and prosperity for all our newly acquired companies.

We actively seek merchant assets with the aim to exploit the market opportunities, focusing on specific asset mix in each market where we operate.

Our long-term experience and roots in the power generation, commodities trading and natural resources mining helps us to contribute to further growth and operational/commercial excellence of the acquired firms.

Strong Expertise
And Credentials

Our acquisition and integration teams composed of experienced M&A professionals, market research and industry specialists and turnaround experts work closely with the management of our portfolio companies to jointly develop best strategies for sustainable and value-generating growth in the ever-changing markets.

We hire and develop the best people who can help us prosper and grow further. We nourish and share the talent across our investment portfolio.

Long-term
Commitment

We invest for the long-term and work with the local management of our target companies to achieve a successful and sustainable operations and growth for all our stakeholders and communities.

We use initial investments as platforms for further growth.

We actively manage the assets and explore synergies, both within our investment portfolio and with our sister group Sev.en Energy.

We aim to operate our assets until the end of their operational life and their systemic role in the industry. We divest only assets for which we are no longer the best-suited owner.







People



People
Are Our
Strongest
Assets

Our investment and integration teams consist of experienced investment professionals and corporate managers and turnaround experts with entrepreneurial spirit and deep-rooted technical and commercial expertise. We have a long standing and proven track record across several industries and the right balance between professional competence, managerial skills, experience and personal integrity.

As in any intensive buy-side work, we challenge ourselves to understand the opportunities from all relevant business, financial, commercial, operational, legal, and regulatory angles, anticipate the short and long-term market dynamics, foresee risks and add-on opportunities, quantitatively scrutinize the value generation potential, and structure the transactions and conduct the negotiations such that value gets captured and risks preempted or priced in. Our work is dynamic and intense but the joint success is rewarding.










Structure

Family Office
Main Vehicle For
International
Growth

International expansion of Sev.en Energy started in 2019 with the first major step being a purchase of the 50% stake in InterGen N.V. with assets in the UK and Australia.

In 2020, it continued with the acquisitions of metallurgical coal producers in the United States Blackhawk Mining, LLC and Corsa Coal Corp.

In 2021, Sev.en Energy acquired several portfolios of mining rights and land in the United States, which triggered a separate investment category focus.

Over the last two years these international acquisitions were consolidated under the newly formed Sev.en Global Investments group with the objective to further strengthen the investment focus and widen the acquisition scope to other sectors. At the end of 2021, Sev.en Global Investments became the family office main vehicle for international Investments and business development.

In 2022, Sev.en Global Investments strengthened its energy generation business in Australia by acquiring a 100% share of Delta Electricity Pty Ltd which owns and operates the coal-fired Vales Point Power Station and the Chain Valley Colliery mining complex in New South Wales, Australia.

In addition, 7GI has expanded its sector presence to minerals by acquiring a 100% share in Australia Salt Lake Potash Pty Ltd, the operating subsidiary of Salt Lake Potash (SO4), developing the flagship Lake Way potash project in Western Australia with planned production of over 200,000 tons per annum of potassium-based fertilizers.
