“We are looking at post-COVID supply chains simply because supply chains will need to change. There are various reasons for this change — consumer-driven, regulatory, cost, and so on. We are looking at post-COVID payment systems. We have done a lot of research. This varies from traditional payment systems, other types of blockchain-based solutions, and post COVID infrastructures. This is linked to one philosophy that is dear to us — finding solutions that generate cash flows and at the same time address some social challenges. We look at it as a win-win situation. This might be the base of a new theme that emerges and will become complementary to the ones I mentioned. This is how we approach things. We use mental models to try and understand what might be happening, what’s not happening, and to challenge ourselves. When these have been structured, we look at the direct investments or companies or funds who could populate that field in a way which we feel is attractive.”
