At The Valesco Group we believe in our responsibility as an investment firm to ensure that we generate a positive and socially responsible outcome as a guiding principle underpinning what we do. We endeavor to generate positive externalities from our investment theses, but also to drive forward our own projects in an effort to improve the landscape for the society that we live in today as well as for future generations.

For these reasons we launched The Valesco Foundation. Funded from our profits, the Foundation aims to provide capital and resource to various global projects in an effort to achieve The Valesco Group's philanthropic goals.

The Valesco Group supports communities and organisations both locally and beyond. 

  • Profit distribution to pre-screened non-profit charitable organisations and socially responsible initiatives via The Valesco Foundation
  • An annual appeal to our employees which provides a convenient way to donate to registered non-profit organisations
  • In-house program which allows our employees to dedicate two business days per year volunteering at non-profit organisations

The firm’s goals have social welfare ingrained in their very foundations. We endeavour to achieve more from the success of our firm for the common good

Supported Charities


Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself
— Rumi

Hope and opportunity are powerful. Our carefully selected supported charities and initiatives succeed at delivering these to communities across the world.


Do not train children to learn by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may better be able to discover with accuracy the peculiar genius of each
— Plato

Education is paramount in achieving a better society. The Valesco Foundation as part of its core principles supports a number of programmes which aim to improve education levels within impoverished societies. By improving the standards of education we hope to reach a place where every person is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential.



The Valesco Foundation was born with corporate social responsibility in its roots. From its inception, The Foundation has supported a number of initiatives and charities with the sole intention of improving welfare wherever possible. The success of the Foundation is what motivates us
