Investing in the Power of Technology to Make Life Better

Our Philosophy

We believe in the power of technology to make life better for people around the world. That’s why we build digital businesses that make a positive difference to peoples’ lives. Whether it is consumer services, telecom, financial services or healthcare services, technology is making everything easier, speedier and more freely available.

The consumer and their right to choose is at the heart of everything we do. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to seek, find and benefit from the services they need and want. The businesses we build are the key to providing that opportunity.

Vision

To make people’s lives better by providing more and better choice
