Three Pillar Culture

Alignment

We are absolutely focused on alignment to shareholders and stakeholders – creating and securing robust and sustainable solutions that protect and enhance shareholder value and returns.

“In his role in leading JLIF, Andrew and his team always sought to put shareholders’ interests as the highest priority in making investment and operational management decisions. This was demonstrated by the 10% pa average shareholder return during Andrew’s tenure”

(Paul Lester CBE – Chairman JLIF 2010 – 2017)

CAMG’s approach to alignment goes beyond beneficial and financial incentives.  Investments made by us will be more robust and sustainable by aligning the interests of broader stakeholders.  CAMG will focus beyond the short term, driving enduring financial benefit for investors, developing a sustainable relationship with stakeholders and building a reputation and legacy for the longstanding success of the investments.

Expertise

We are an independent, proactive fund advisor, with in depth knowledge and experience – bringing a real understanding of underlying assets – of infrastructure “mechanics” from development to execution and management.  

“He’s [Norman Anderson] one of the few people in this country that actually really knows and has worked with infrastructure.”

(Tony Parker – Republican National Committee Treasurer, Fox News – April 2017)

With a combined experience of over 300 years of infrastructure development and delivery, the CAMG Team bring real world experience of developing and operating infrastructure assets on the ground. We strongly believe that investment in infrastructure requires a detailed knowledge of the underlying mechanics of the projects, pro-active management and an ability to engage with stakeholders in the projects and their communities.

Integrity

We respect our partners and counter-parties.  We are socially responsible in the way that we do business and in the way that we approach the market, thereby creating a long-term stable investment platform.

.

“From my first-hand experience with Andrew, Ian and other members of the CAMG team, I know that that they act with honesty and integrity in seeking the best outcome for the projects, communities and investors, without being driven by self-interest.”

(David Toplas – Fund Manager on IIC Fund, c£120m portfolio acquired by JLIF in 2014)

The CAMG Team has come together through shared values of creating positive, sustainable improvements to society. This goes beyond a traditional investment appraisal and puts a holistic view of the social, environmental and economic impact that an infrastructure project has.  Behaving with integrity and respect is a requirement and not an option.  CAMG’s role is as a custodian of the infrastructure on behalf of the communities for which the infrastructure is developed and the investors that enable this investment.
