Experience

    Restructuring
    • Through our hands-on approach to operations, at gTC we have extensive experience restructuring both operating companies and real estate companies.
    • We use our in-depth knowledge of appropriate adjustments to operations, structure, people or processes to improve overall results. This applies to growing companies needing to take their business to the next level, which may require new delivery models, or large organizations needing to consolidate to compete in a changing business environment.
    • gTC can provide the capital and expertise for middle market companies to implement those important changes to their business.

    Identifying Investment Opportunities
    • While simple in theory, our team understands the complexity inherent in our investment thesis. We understand that much more than a knowledge of macro- and micro- economics, and financial and legal systems is required to pursue the outcomes we, and our clients, expect.
    • We also have a deep understanding of the business model, internal methodologies, branding, contextual positioning within the industry, and industry evolution. This knowledge is especially important when bringing products and services from the confines of a single business or geographic market onto a broader global platform.
    • gTC clients benefit because we cultivate this understanding of the nuances of dealing in multiple geographies, sectors, and operating companies. For example, we often look at healthcare investments that we believe can deliver an impact into the communities in which they are located, which might include operating companies, real estate or other companies that support the delivery of healthcare.

Center for Impact Indices

Much interest and inquiry has recently met the issue of “impact investing”. The idea behind impact investing is that investors can make money by doing good. Making a return on deployed capital is essential to creating stable delivery of services, and to improving those services over time. Skeptics doubt this. Opportunists manipulate this. The Center seeks to validate this.

Stakeholders have increased both the desire to encourage these types of investments and the concern that the investments are either not able to be measured or are otherwise not being measured. In fact, there is concern that the investments are not achieving any of the desired goals. gTC plans to develop The Center for Impact Indices to both identify impact investment opportunities and to address the issue of measurement of the impact over the term of the investment.

The first index in the Center will be the Healthcare Inequality Index or HII. After the competition of the HII, the Center will use its methodology, insights, and resources to expand beyond healthcare. Subject to resource limitations, the Center currently anticipates growing into other areas identified by the impact investment community as important to serve broader goals for humanity including education, water, sanitation, poverty and hunger.
