About FW

FidelisWorld ('FW') started operations in 2010 with the view that insufficient investment focus had been devoted to global sports and sports ancillary businesses, estimated to be worth over USD 500bn. Comprising not just sports teams and leagues, sports-related assets operate in a variety of industries including consumer services, technology, media, leisure, and education. Sports related spending has been growing at multiples of GDP growth worldwide, and this trend is magnified in the high-growth markets of South/Southeast Asia and the Middle East. FW invested proprietary capital and operated assets in this space for three years before launching a unique sports-themed invesment fund, the FW Sports Investment Fund ('FSIF').

The FSIF, based in Mauritius and regulated by that country's Financial Services Commission, began investment activities in October 2013. A strong pipeline has been developed through FW’s relationships, and major investments have been closed in the short time since the Fund began operations (details are available here).

As the first mover in this exciting and relatively untapped investment segment, FW aims to create within its portfolio an ecosystem of sports themed businesses that leverage each other's growth and create value whether a sports team is winning or losing.
