AQAL Capital is a single family office driven by integral sustainability and guided by the proprietary Theta Model as a successful de-risking framework
Our core investment strategy is based on integral sustainability criteria. We integrate rigorous financial and legal due diligence criteria with social, environmental, cultural, behavioral measurements as well as high ethics, morals, and higher human values. Therefore, we provide the sustainable integration between traditional, profit-oriented, investing criteria and impact investing measurements with its social, environmental, and governance (ESG/UN PRI) metrics.
We subscribe to the UN PRI (Principles for Responsible Investing) and adopt the Impact Investing definition employed by the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN): “Impact investments are investments made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. They can be made in both emerging and developed markets.”
However, we focus mainly on developed countries.
Our portfolio companies have the ability to scale their technology and services into a worldwide marketplace by addressing their integral sustainability needs. These companies fulfill both the investors’ fiduciary responsibilities (profit) as well as their sustainable and responsible goals (people, planet, and purpose).
Integral Investing is based on Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory, which is applied in more than 50 disciplines across the world including economics, business, education, and medicine.
“Mariana Bozesan is doing a terrific job of applying the Integral AQAL Framework to the difficult and delicate world of finances and investment. Recognizing that, for example, all four quadrants (the four basic ways that any phenomenon can be seen—from the interior and the exterior, and in the individual and collective forms) changes how we look at finances entirely, from something reflecting only the exterior individual and collective material capital of existence, to also reflecting individual and collective values, meanings, motivations, worldviews, and beliefs. All of these have a profound impact on finances, how they are seen, used, and developed; and using anything less than all those perspectives gives us a partial, fragmented, truncated, and broken view. Mariana is using these (and all of the other Integral dimensions) to present a much more comprehensive, inclusive, and integral view. My deep thanks and highest congratulations to her!”
