“As a core manager, we take our job very seriously. The change in mandate of HM1 to invest in late stage private companies is a positive move in our view. It allows us to put forward our highest convictions ideas - two companies that dominate the TDM portfolio and where I sit on the board as the major shareholder. We always struggled that we were unable invest in our largest positions, and this has now been resolved. We are very excited about the Rokt and GYG businesses and believe they will produce strong returns for HM1 over the medium to long term.” - Tom Cowan, TDM Growth Partners
