The energy and mining industries are now both truly global industries. This has translated, inter alia, into a variety of challenges such as environmental integrity, infrastructure requirements, commodity price volatility, local community impact and the establishment of strong governance and non-corrupt practices.
Challenges like these demand constant attention to protect the integrity of an investment plan right from inception; especially structuring and maintaining a sound cooperation between the investors, local communities and host governments.
The access to resources in particular is fast becoming one of the most important issues faced by the industry today. Suffice to say that without stable and willing governments there is no access to minerals, and without investors there is no risk capital to tackle modern projects that often require an array of additional infra-structure projects to become viable.
This brings about the need for effective dialogue between stakeholders in order to generate mutual trust and understanding at all stages of a project's development.
At Marys Capital Investments, we bring together decades of expertise gained at the world's largest mining and energy companies to the effect of facilitating these resource investments for both governments and investors. Our proven track record and wide ranging skills enable us to deliver effective solutions for our clients and their stakeholders.
We pride ourselves on delivering our services in a manner consistent with the highest international quality and ethical standards. Not only do we provide capital, we also deliver strategic insights along with it to companies or investors seeking to reach a whole new level of transformation. This is our solid commitment to our partners.
Our core investments are largely aimed at the full spectrum of energy and mining industries, but we continuously review the potential for nifty and opportunistic investments in technology, agro industry, transport and real estate.
Those investments are undertaken either directly for ourselves or on behalf of clients through an extremely rigorous process which combines multidisciplinary experts and executives for a holistic view and approach.
On new technology, for instance, we fully agree with McKinsey that technology alone is rarely the key to unlocking economic value and that companies create real wealth when they combine technology with new ways of doing business. Nonetheless, we believe that technology breakthroughs are both serious revenue generators and exciting business models.
This supports our desire to acquire a first mover advantage into technological ventures prior to them making it big. In that way, an even bigger margin potential is realized for our clients. This explains our passion for start-ups across industries particularly those with potential to create market discontinuities.
That approach is replicated through to the real estate sector, agro industry, transport and more as they all benefit from solid long term fundamentals underpinned by population growth and improving standard of living in emerging markets.
In order to raise the corporate profile of investors operating or looking to enter unknown areas, we research and advise on the best approach to embed your name into the local communities. Given the often changing stance of host countries and communities towards investors, we provide services involving regular surveying and engagement. This sustainable approach is critical to foreign and domestic investors alike.
Furthermore, we offer country monitoring services containing insights as to the in country political and economic dynamics. These can be tailored to the potential implications for your sector of interest. As a result, we are well positioned to make clear recommendations to our clients as to the expected impact on their business. In doing so, we support them in taking preemptive actions ranging from risks mitigation to voluntary exit.
Marys Capital Investments' initial focus is to encourage foreign investors to experience the potential for developing an opportunity. To speed up this process we will facilitate business development visits with access to key, high-level decision makers in country. We use our extensive networks to arrange meetings and assist with all details to ensure an efficient and effective visit across many countries.
Our local staff is well trained to organize and host door-to-door services which include transportation, high standard accommodation and personal security should the need arise. Finally, once the decision to invest is made, we help our clients secure office space in prime locations.
This is accompanied by additional services such as immigration compliance, local banking services and company registration procedures. We believe such comprehensive services guarantee that investors can focus entirely on developing their business on schedule and on budget in order to manage costs in an efficient manner.
