Zeta Energy Pte. Ltd. is a Singapore-based unlisted oil and gas investment company focused on the South-East Asian and Australasian regions. It was incorporated in 2014 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zeta Resources Limited.
Zeta's aim is to maximise total returns for shareholders by identifying and investing in assets and companies where the underlying value may not be reflected in the market price. This is achieved by assisting local management over the long term by focusing on capital growth, investee profitability and dividend yields. The company invests in a range of resources entities, including those focused on bauxite, gold, copper, nickel, graphite, oil & gas and base metals exploration and production.
The Directors are responsible for the determination of Zeta’s investment policy and have overall responsibility for Zeta’s day-to-day activities. Zeta has entered into an investment management agreement with ICM Limited, under which ICM provides investment management services including stock selection, portfolio monitoring and research to the Company.
ICM is an investment group built on a philosophy of value creation, vision and innovation. ICM continually looks for compelling investment opportunities, and it thrives on market imperfections based on years of experience in investments and investment processes. ICM actively engages with its investee companies on material Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) issues with the intention of creating a positive impact on its results and the groups ICM work with. Active monitoring of investee companies is an essential part of ICM’s responsible investment strategy.
