The Mozaic operates across a board platform, investing proprietary capital in every deal along with like-minded Partners. We do not invest in existing businesses and we do not manage outside capital. Although we are industry agnostic, we typically prefer real estate opportunities whereby we place a strong emphasis on the preservation of capital and take an event-driven approach to the investment. For non-real estate investments, we focus on opportunities that can generate strong operating cashflow and can scale.
We strongly believe that an idea is only as good as the team executing it. That’s why we created The Mozaic, an informal network of elite investors and business professionals from around the world.
The Mozaic’s deal flow is sourced from within this network and is typically off-market and exclusive. We create the ideal business structure that makes sense for each deal and we assemble the best possible team to bring each deal to the next level.
All of our investments are executed on a deal-by-deal basis. An example would be a wealthy individual who owns land and is looking for JV Partners to construct a building or a residential property on the land. The Mozaic structures the deal, creates a clear business plan, invests its own capital and then assembles both the team and the partners to bring the deal to life.
We take an event-driven approach to investing, meaning, we build to sell. We look for opportunities that have an event-horizon of between 3 to 5 years and the potential to generate an annual return exceeding 20%.
The preservation of capital is another core tenet of our investment approach, and is largely the reason we prefer real estate assets. We also find it easier to sell real estate assets when the time comes as the universe of potential buyers is very large.
We also believe in the power of recognized brands. The Mozaic is actively looking to bring the most iconic Food and Beverage brands from around the world to Asia. We believe this has a natural synergy with our real estate activities as great brands will demand only the best locations. We also have natural consumption via the mixed-use developments in our pipeline.
At the heart of it all is our relationship with entrepreneurs from around the world. While we don’t invest in existing businesses, we have strong interest in partnering with proven entrepreneurs on new deals. This is the power of The Mozaic. We are not constrained by fund structures, geography or even mandate. However, we remain intensely focused on ensuring we pick the right deals and we assemble the right Partners for the job.
The Mozaic Way
The Mozaic Way follows in the footsteps of legendary investor Warren Buffet and the genius founders of 3G Capital. It is a business philosophy that is based on extreme transparency, merit-based pay, austere budgeting (where employees treat a company’s money as their own), a focus on promoting young talent and a spirit of extreme competitiveness.
The Mozaic Way is defined by 3 pillars: the People, the Big Dream and the Culture.
