Our name Y2 is inspired by the “Year Two” Cosmic Calendar concept, proposed by US astrophysicist Carl Sagan. As he visualizes 13.8 billion years of cosmic chronology into one single year, human history only exists from 23:59:33 on Dec 31st, Year One. Any moment from now on into the future is in the first second of Year Two. We at Y2 Capital hope to build humanity’s resilience to sail through social & environmental changes together with our investors, portfolios & stakeholders.
Y2 also resonates with the question “Why to”. We value curiosity in practical investments, as much as we value the search for “purpose” of why to invest? In addition to generating returns for our investors, we hope to build a model of a responsible asset manager and to inspire an ecosystem of sustainable business leaders in Asia.
