AMP Investment Partners is a private investment club and business platform founded by alumni of Harvard Business School's Advanced Management Program. Our purpose is to leverage the breadth and depth of our collective knowledge as well as global reach of our Partner base to identify unique investment and business opportunities aimed at long term value creation and impact.
The membership is by invitation only and is subject to meeting the entry criteria and minimum capital commitments.
The mission of AMP Investment Partners is to generate long-term wealth for its members by channeling the financial capacity, intellectual capability, and global network of each Partner for the benefit of the collective group. A common background and affiliation has forged a special bond amongst the Partners. We share a passion for learning, entrepreneurship and giving back to the community.
We invest in companies around the globe which demonstrate a combination of outstanding leadership, strong culture, and superior management teams that create significant long-term value. Our long-term time horizon, along with a focus on change - at the macroeconomic, industry and company level - allow us to exploit long term thematic drivers and invest at times when we believe the market is mispricing the future prospects.
We collaborate across industry, geographic and functional lines to leverage unique insights and skills from our partners in the research and investment decision making process.
We develop unique investment insights and opportunities by leveraging a global network of top executives from a broad range of industries and geographies. We believe that our diverse backgrounds and experiences coupled with our shared values allow us to navigate the critical issues at the intersection of finance and the leadership of companies.
The pursuit of knowledge and understanding allows us to individually and collectively develop perspective and value for the benefit of our members and society.
We support our global community by providing a setting that rewards creativity, entrepreneurship and learning. We do this by fostering an environment of trust and mutual respect that encourages rigorous debate and global collaboration. Our commitment to our members and business partners is to use all the levers at our disposal to facilitate access to capital, expertise and talent.
