Our Vision & Beliefs
As a leading infrastructure manager, we are always looking to think ahead of our competitors in what we do and where we invest our client’s capital. A deep sense of curiosity and a desire to predict – and shape – what the future infrastructure landscape will look like is a central part of our ambitious and entrepreneurial approach at AMP Capital.
We know that building resilience and transforming businesses requires far more than just capital. It is about active ownership with a long-term sustainable vision, working closely with management and boards, taking a truly hands-on approach to governance and leveraging the expertise of our global network.
Our team recognises every investment has an impact on society, intended or not, and we have a crucial part to play in demanding high standards from ourselves and our portfolio businesses to ensure it’s a positive one. We want to help shape a society that prioritises social and environmental outcomes, laying the foundations for a more stakeholder-driven and balanced economy – one that aligns people, profit and planet.
