HOW WE WORK
Xefast is a tightly knit group working together with management teams toward common goals. We have more than 70 investment professionals, including 24 partners with an average tenure at Xefast of more than a decade. This allows us to devote substantial time to our investors.
Our objective is to work with portfolio company leadership and create a backdrop in which companies can thrive. We encourage management teams to invest alongside us, and our forward-thinking approach and philosophy to leave companies better than when we found them also means that portfolio company employees often choose to invest alongside Xefast as well.
We believe that people thrive when they are working toward a common and focused goal. We are proud of our transparency and alignment of interest with our portfolio companies and investors. We believe our focus and significant skin in the game allows us to build true, successful partnerships.
The Board of Directors and management of Xefast have long recognized the importance of corporate governance practices that help ensure an environment of effective oversight and strong accountability. Our goal at Fenway Partners is to generate superior financial returns for our investors by building stronger and more valuable businesses.
Powering a World of Difference
As a major global financial institution, we must consider the effects our business has on the environment and the people around the world. That's why we strive to uncover new ways of ensuring sustainable economic growth that protects healthy markets and delivers value not only to our clients but also to communities, businesses, governments and people everywhere.
ESG at Xefast
At Xefast, we aim to accelerate the evolution of ESG - on behalf of clients, investors, communities and all the stakeholders - to make a positive impact on people and the planet. With our size, scale and significance at the heart of the financial system, we touch many points along the financial value chain-giving us an unparalleled view of the continuous shifts in ESG. We're uniquely positioned to collaborate with clients to drive transparency, insight and impact.
We know that the best way to achieve this objective is to be disciplined in our approach, and that we will be more successful when we thoroughly understand a business, its challenges and opportunities. We begin by investing in portfolio's that meet well-defined criteria in industries where we have relevant knowledge. We leverage our accumulated experience and work closely with the managers of our portfolio's to implement strategies to energize our businesses. We believe the key to creating superior value for investors is to pursue sound business strategies in partnership with talented managers. We seek to minimize risk, take a long-term view when making business decisions, and support our management teams as partners.
At Xefast, we advance sustainable economic growth and financial opportunity. Drawing on over eight years of experience working with the world's leading businesses, entrepreneurs, and institutions, we mobilize our people, culture, technologies, and ideas to advance the success of our clients, broaden individual prosperity, and accelerate economic progress for all. Our purpose comes to life through our four core values: Client Service, Excellence, Integrity, and Partnership.
Our people are our greatest asset - we say it often and with good reason. It is only with the determination and dedication of our people that we can serve our clients, generate long-term value for our shareholders and contribute to the broader public. At every step of our employees careers we invest in them, and ensure their interests remain focused on the long term and closely aligned with those of our clients and shareholders.
RISK MANAGEMENT AT THE CENTER
We seek to manage risk in order to capitalize on opportunities and improve our performance.
Disciplined risk estimation and management are deeply integrated components of the investment
process across each one of our strategies.
We believe a well-constructed portfolio upfront will outperform in good markets and protect our client's capital in difficult markets. For this reason, Xefast has spent over a quarter of a century establishing risk management as a core discipline. This approach begins with a dedicated governance group that oversees risk management. An emphasis on liquid markets, proprietary risk models and a diversified funding structure seeks to further strengthen our approach.
