We are an international private asset management firm specializing in investments in emerging markets. Managed by a team of seasoned professionals, our portfolio of investments operates businesses in information technology, business services, and the hospitality industry. We are committed to investing in companies that are positively impacting their communities and generating a return on investment.
In the geographical areas we target – Africa, Central and Latin America, and most of Asia – technology and service based companies offer the best prospects for value-added investing. There is a huge need for entrepreneurial firms that seek to capture market share in industries new to the areas. The GSS management team has the expertise required to effectively position innovative firms quickly and efficiently and provide the equity needed to build operations and gain market share.
GSS diligently searches for companies that have strong business growth potential if the right management and operational teams are combined with a targeted industry approach.
We focus on the attractive, niche companies. The companies we seek must have attractive risk-adjusted returns that are not reliant on debt. We look for market demand, scale advantages, limited competition and industry growth factors.

In order to support the actions necessary for the business plan, we work closely with the management teams and offer legal, accounting, marketing and other industry specific consultants. In addition, we help with special projects.
