Capital appreciation

Strategies to generate financial results that are in line with returns expected by investors for non-impact related investments and ensuring capital value is not depleted through the Odonata 7Cs' principles.

It is not wise to rely on capital appreciation alone and so we focus on cashflow opportunities and feasibility, including those through the emerging natural capital markets.

Our statement of intent

Odonata respects and honours Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge the stories, traditions, living cultures and unceded connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to the lands and waters across Australia. We are committed to bringing the greatest good for the greatest number of people and Country, leaving no one behind.
