Corporate Investment Strategy

Remaining true to our main aim of maximising shareholder value, the SIIL Board of Directors allocates a set amount of available capital to be utilised in its investment strategy every year. Guided by the Corporate Center, which behaves as an Internal Capital Fund Provider, capital allocation is determined using a selection of return on investment expenditure (ROCE)-influencing factors, including net present value (NVP), market share, manager confidence and reputation, previous returns and cash flow timing.

SIIL invests both in its existing or new business activities and real estate properties as well as external businesses and markets. Our direct portfolio represents strategic investments by way of equity stakes in promising regional companies and our indirect portfolio consists of broad-based equity shares in the local, regional and international equity markets.
