OUR STORY

WE PUSH BOUNDARIES – TO BE BOLD AND TO CAPITALIZE ON OPPORTUNITIES THAT OTHERS MAY RUN FROM.

Our Approach

Durum has operated by the core principle coined by Jim Collins – “First who, then what.” Our team embodies the same core values of humility, original thought, courage & candour, tenacity, authenticity, and fun.

At durum, we are driven by challenging questions and challenging scenarios. We do not look for “easy” investments; rather we focus on opaque markets where price discovery is poorly defined. This philosophy has provided the foundation for our core operating principles.

ALIGNMENT

We will always put our money where our mouth is. Our parent company, (SFHC) will remain a large investor in each project, while ensuring the right people are engaged and motivated to move the project forward.

ALTERNATIVES

Durum operates on the belief that the best solution is rarely the first solution that comes to mind. Creating and evaluating alternatives is how we protect stakeholders and ensure valuable outcomes.

ACTION

We value original thought and decisive action – two things that cannot exist without a high degree of independence. Durum believes that independence provides an opportunity to truly influence a project and leads to actionable outcomes that benefit all stakeholders.
