The KPO Group gets assets built

These projects target assets that are significant to a region’s economic vitality.  Complexity characterizes their realization: complexity of design, of construction, of community integration, of logistics, and of financing. 

The Group’s objective is straightforward: to bring capital projects to reality, a process that encompasses four milestones:

  1. Get them financed, which requires the project to be properly structured
  2. Make them real, which requires the execution of the project to be credibly framed
  3. Get them done, which requires the project to be reliably and professionally managed
  4. Make them work, which demands that the resulting asset be competently operated

Investment classes

The realm of KPO investment opportunities is divided into two classes: Assets and People.

The Asset class pertains to revenue-generating assets typically found in the Resources, Energy, Infrastructure, and Real Estate sectors. The emphasis is placed on large private and/or public-private-projects (PPP) concerned with economic longevity of at least 15 years coupled with certainty of long-term ROIs. Considerations will be given to mature and emerging markets in the Americas and Caribbean, Sub-Saharan Africa, South East Asia, and Oceania.

The People class pertains to capital injections into private enterprises and social empowerment (principally in emerging and small markets). Enterprise investments are primarily directed to start-ups, business growth, market expansions, new market entries, and pre-IPO organizations. Investments in social capital opportunities are endowed with an explicit mission to reduce poverty, increase individual economic prospects, and create earning opportunities to disadvantaged boys, girls, and women, through a stable-knowledge model.

“The Stable-Knowledge (SK) Model rests on the axiom that the highest probability of business success comes from success experience found in the private sector. The typical social capital project is planned, orchestrated and managed by business professionals with proven track records, under the leadership of an appointed champion from their ranks, who provide the subject matter expertise remotely and daily to the local workers hired to work and learn the ropes of the business in situ, without any attempt to change the culture. Ownership of the business remains solely with investors, while day-to-day management authority remains with the champion. Both ownership and management authority are transferred over time to the local workers who have proven themselves competent to do so, in the eyes of the Champion and the investors.”
