We support the notion of financial long-termism: fostering pension, insurance and endowment investment in innovative venture capital and ESG-informed private equity assets, and modern energy & transportation infrastructure in America and abroad
This ambition can only benefit from America's strategic partnerships with the European Union (EU) and market-oriented Indo-Pacific nations, notably Australian, Singaporean, and South Korean tech leaders and sovereign wealth funds (SWFs)
We believe in women empowerment ("SDG 5") and the need to invest in African women & girls today, so they can truly achieve their full potential: rising to top leadership positions across government, business and academia in their homeland, and across multinational corporations and supranational institutions etc.
We support actively the development and mainstreaming of reconstructive surgery clinics and continuing education training programs across the continent, helping disenfranchised African women and civil war & domestic violence victims regain their confidence and rebuild their lives
