Our objectives are to treat existing investors as partners and provide each with a first-class, professional and personalised service by being open, responsive, attentive and provide high quality information which is timely and transparent. We want to build good relationships with potential investors to enable a thorough knowledge and understanding of their strategy and team and ensure investors understand the NorthEdge story well ahead of any future potential fund raise.
We believe strong relationships and best in class communications with our investors play a fundamental role in successful investments. We work closely with our investors and are open and inclusive about our operations, and the underlying performance of investments.
