PIC assesses risk and makes investment decisions based on the criteria listed on our website. Our intention is always to maximise our return either long-term or short-term by bringing some synergy or expertise to the business. Our assistance intends to enable the business to reward or redeem our investment. The basic underlying motive is a belief that a strong and vibrant economy is constructed by growing one business at a time. Our focus at the beginning of the year was conservative with a restraint on new initiatives. As the year progressed the human resources required to analyse and manage new investments started to show available capacity. We began to accept new minority investment opportunities. Lessons from the past resulted in additions that were more thoughtful and would require an affordable amount of management effort.
