Our Healthcare Strategy

Why Healthcare

Why Healthcare?
  • Healthcare demonstrates low cyclicality, high barriers to entry, high margins and strong cash generation
  • Healthcare spend is increasing as the population ages; chronic diseases persist; technology advances; and patients and healthcare consumers become better informed and more demanding

Our Resource Efficiency Strategy


Why Resource Efficiency?
  • Resource Efficiency will be one of the largest areas of growth markets in the next decade
  • Relevant technology, services and capital investment models are going to have a greater impact than infrastructure investment on achieving climate goals and building highly-differentiated long-term attractive businesses
  • Stanley Capital is focused on demand-side efficiency as largest market value opportunity

Focus Subsectors

Stanley Capital is focused on asset-lite and tech-enabled demand side companies
  • These companies will benefit from core sector mega trends – companies that reduce consumption or promote resource efficiency from verticals such as process automation, software and integrated hardware solutions; heat and distributed energy services; low carbon transportation; and/or integrated resource efficiency services
  • Finance platforms that enable the transition (like leasing companies)
  • Future trends in consumption including circular economy, shared economy including sustainable and circular agriculture
  • Industrial goods with exposure to ranging from food and agriculture, clean cities and infrastructure, clean energy and materials to consumer products

Energy Transition

Two mega-trends are changing the way we supply and consume energy
  • The Energy Transition currently underway is movement towards a clean and smart power grid, and away from the legacy passive infrastructure and thermal power that puts the world on a Paris-compliant 2-degree pathway. This shift is disruptive and accelerating, and leading to a structural and permanent change in the structure of demand, supply, energy mix and pricing models.In aggregate the Energy Transition will cost $10-20 trillion in investment over the next decade. The principle supply side resources will be new renewable and clean sources of energy (solar, wind and hydro).
  • However, the grid structure and the ‘last mile’ service design for the customer is where the greatest change will occur. The ‘last mile’ shift will be driven by integrated software and innovative and integrated customer models, rather than stand-alone hardware. Examples will be smart trading models, power storage, control solutions, energy efficiency and integrated ‘smart’ customer supply models. Incumbents will struggle with this transition, and new champions will emerge with disruptive business models and products.
  • The opportunity lies in helping grow and consolidate new markets, help incumbents with the transition, support adjacent sectors translate capabilities and help develop innovative financing solutions.
  • This is the ‘point of singularity’, when the world rings out the old and rings in the new, welcoming the future of alternative energy.
