Technology

Quantum is a firm believer in the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to drive business processes and ensure improved product or service delivery. So wherever possible Quantum will give preference to investments that exhibit a comparable level of commitment to ICT and its benefits and seek to incorporate ICT tools in those that do not.

Impact

Quantum gives preference to investments ‘with’ or ‘with the potential’ to make a positive societal impact. We do this by thoroughly incorporating social, ethical, governance, transparency and environmental considerations in our investment appraisal and decision making processes. We evaluate each potential investment holistically in terms of these factors and upon investment, seek to unite them in a way that can affect positive change. We hold ourselves (and our investments) to the highest ethical standards.
