Founded by Oil & Gas Exec Scott Gilbert and award-winning marketer Greig Gilbert, GdC is the union of two brothers' passion, experience and vision.


We are a young and vibrant company with investments that are both sector and geographically diverse. To date, GdC has established a portfolio of prosperous, solid and sustainable investments, spanning three continents.

We make ethical and sustainable equity investments globally

GdC operates worldwide in Power, Oil & Gas, Technology, Manufacturing and Food Production in high growth economies.

Our business model is based on two key pillars: active involvement and collaboration.  

Active Involvement

We provide our partners with more than financial support - our approach is to be personally involved in every investment we make. We only invest in ventures where we know we can apply our expertise, and deploy our network to add value.


Using our in-house expertise, we collaborate with industry experts from different backgrounds across the globe, to deliver support to our partners in activating their visions.

He later founded GdC with the aim of contributing towards development in emerging markets, by investing in companies in strategic geographies and sectors, and adding value through management expertise and market knowledge.

For the curious minds, de Clermont is a family name. It was chosen in honour to our late grandfather, Jorge de Clermont, who's values and dedication to his family inspire the way in which we approach business at Group de Clermont.
