We Invest Capital & Expertise


We are able to fund any stage of business development where our capital participation and support services have a material impact.
We add value by funding opportunities, adding professional project support, and then applying international standards of due-diligence, financial or feasibility analysis, and financial engineering.
We can engage before other financiers and investors who are only willing join at the next level of finance.


Our Investment Process


We assist with diverse investment solutions by initially injecting our seed or anchor capital which can then become the bridge for further development and funding within our capital network, or from other fund partners or financiers.

We accept referrals from network partners either as club, anchor, or pioneer investors. We work closely with our network of capital partners to align opportunities to their business culture, goals and strategies, and to align appropriate partnerships and local opportunities.

Our strong local presence enhances our ability to filter attractive investments and restructure them according to international standards. In every instance, we recruit a dedicated team of senior investment professionals to help engineer and structure creative financial solutions for each project.

Start Up & Early Stage


We fund planning and feasibility studies and support early business development including capitalisation, management and technical resources as required. We evaluate proposals to ascertain requirements for success beyond capital needs.
We negotiate and assume a principal position while offering appropriate claw back provisions that balance our front loaded risk. We are industry agnostic, however we prioritise solid ideas from promoters with proven business and management credentials.
We will consider untested promoters and new concepts where we fully control financials. Investment size is determined according to project requirements.

Credit & Mezzanine


We assume lead principal positions arranging both direct or indirect non-traditional lending in conjunction with major partners within our network. Our experienced investment professionals liaise with business partners to optimise capital deployment strategies based on the appropriate balance of exposure and potential.
Our solutions include mezzanine funding, preferred equity, debt swaps, countertrade and off-take capitalisations, as examples. Support is typically limited to going-concerns with recognisable cash flow or bankable documentation.
Investment size is typically substantiated by enterprise values, with no specific upper limits. Potential investment support for up to US$ billions can be arranged for approved government backed transactions.

Equity & Capital Markets


Established business seeking traditional capital solutions can count on support for organising access to capital products and capital markets where we are the lead investor. We recruit club funding within our network for more complex arrangements.
Our service typically involves complex high value transactions that often require an arranger, first sponsor or originating principal. We offer private equity and market solutions for listed and unlisted companies with opportunities ranging from acquisitions, divestments, project development or even public private partnerships (PPP ) in any industry or service sector.
Capital limits on relevant opportunities are determined by market principles.
