Satori Capital

gfx_sustainablemodel We believe in the power of Conscious Capitalism as a method of creating superior and sustainable long-term value. At Satori, the tenets of Conscious Capitalism are central to our thinking throughout all phases of our investment process; these tenets inform us during deal origination and due diligence and they guide us as we work to unlock value in our portfolio companies.

At the core of Conscious Capitalism is an emphasis on a company's mission and purpose, a stakeholder-centric approach to doing business, and a long-term perspective.

  • Every great business has a strong sense of mission and purpose that is highly motivating and provides a reason for all stakeholders to deeply care about the success of the enterprise.
  • Engaged employees are more productive and loyal and create lasting and profitable relationships with customers, vendors, and suppliers.
  • Happy customers are more loyal and profitable.
  • Treating vendors and suppliers as essential long-term partners leads to higher quality products and services, thus leading to happier customers and larger profits.
  • Businesses that actively support the community & environment in which they operate receive strong support in return. Further, strong corporate citizenship is motivating to all stakeholders.
  • Long-term Investors reap tremendous financial rewards when businesses are managed for the benefit of all stakeholders.

At Satori, we emphasize the tenets of Conscious Capitalism throughout all phases of our investment process. We call this Sustainable Investing.

Our investment process combines comprehensive business and financial analysis with an equally rigorous sustainability analysis. This integrated approach gives us a critically important additional perspective that many investors often minimize or ignore. Our approach enables us to better identify companies that are leaders in their respective industries and that possess a strong foundation for growth.

Specifically, we look closely at how a company relates to all of its stakeholders: employees, customers, partners, suppliers, shareholders, and the community and environment. This second layer of analysis gives us added insight into the quality of a firm's management and culture and enables us to better identify a company's risks and potential.

We believe that companies with sustainable business practices are better managed, more innovative, less risky and better positioned to deliver superior performance over the long-term.

There is a great deal of support, both in theory and in practice, for the integration of sustainability factors into investment analysis and decision-making.

Additionally, "Firms of Endearment," defined as those companies that explicitly take a stakeholder-centric approach, returned 1,025 percent over a 10-year period, compared to 122 percent for the S&P 500 during the same period.
