Who we are

Why invest with us

Our Strategy

Our investment philosophy is designed to partner with our clients to deliver customised private equity solutions.

With many industries being disrupted, impacted and transformed by advances in technology and distribution and supply chain channels globally, OMAI seeks to capitalise on this disruption and transformation by investing in the private markets. It seeks managers that can identify where technology can make traditional industries more competitive and effective and where the most innovative, category leading companies emerge. Our proprietary investment process and broad origination capabilities enable us to create portfolios that have the potential to achieve top quartile returns.

We focus on all areas and stages of private equity to formulate a well-diversified portfolio that will mitigate risk but also create alpha. We invest through funds that provide capital solutions, business building, networks and know-how to their underlying companies. We offer investors access to top-tier managers across the globe.

Our Strategy
We focus on top-tier and multi-stage managers, globally

We Focus on top-tier and multi-stage managers, globally. We see a clear opportunity to back top-tier performers for their ability to outperform benchmarks, their industry peers and the relevant public markets.

Through careful and selective portfolio allocation across developed and emerging markets, we believe that the strongest returns will come from backing seasoned, consistent managers who not only have access to superior deal flow but are also able to maintain disciplined entry valuations.
