TVM Operations Group, an accelerator company, sets us apart, adding considerable value to our portfolio companies and reducing investment execution risk. TVM Operations Group provides research and advisory services, including screening and comparing new investment opportunities, conducting market assessment and market feasibility studies, delivering financial planning and due diligence, identifying strategic companies for acquisitions of alliances, analyzing market dynamics and building business plans.
By supplying leadership and support functions, it allows our companies to benefit from a pool of expertise in areas such as strategy development, general management support, including interim management, as well as back office support such as IT, finance, legal, marketing and HR. Economies of scale ensure that each company can save time and costs, and still employ high quality specialist skills.
Involving TVM Operations Group experts means that in their early years, our portfolio companies are left to concentrate on doing what they do best — providing high quality healthcare services. Companies will generally be weaned off of that support platform when they reach a more mature or profitable stage and can build a high quality team for these functions internally.
Meanwhile, we have an excellent view on day-to-day realities and can help to find solutions to any issues the companies may face. This encourages good corporate governance across the company, which is highly valued, especially in an emerging market context. TVM Operations is a vital part of our success, and gives our investors much comfort – that emerging market returns do not need to come with the often associated operational risks.
