Our Strategic Positioning
Imperial Pacific is a strategic investor with emphasis on the financial services sector. It provides productive management input to related parties in which it has a strategic equity interest.
Imperial Pacific has low cost, but effective, in-house management which draws upon a wide range of known experts and advisors as situations dictate.
Imperial Pacific's subsidiary Imperial Pacific Asset Management manages through its AFS licence, the portfolio of London City Equities. This fund management area is being viewed as an important area of growth.

Imperial Pacific is presently working towards creating an activist investment fund to hold investments in underperforming companies and initiate change.
