Nature of our Holdings and their Associated Risks

Primarily, Planet will invest in early-stage companies, which may have significant risk, but at the same time, these investments have the ability to rapidly grow and substantially outperform their peers. In assessing an early-stage investment opportunity, Planet focuses a significant amount of attention on the company’s management team and their successful track records. Planet is extremely strict when choosing its investments and has a proven track record itself over the years in its successful investments to date. When the opportunity arises, Planet takes an active role in the companies it invests in, ranging from board seats to advisory services, which allows us to more effectively monitor and evaluate these investments on an ongoing basis.
