OUR INVESTORS

We develop and source investment opportunities for wholesale and sophisticated investors – family offices, asset managers, fund managers, institutions and private individuals looking for reliable turnkey investments.

Our philosophy is a win-win situation for the investors and the invested – “do good, and do no harm”. We recommend investment opportunities that we personally believe in from a commercial and social standpoint while giving the required return back to the investors.

Are you a Wholesale Investor in Australia?

In Australia to become a wholesale investor, you have to acquire a certificate from a qualified accountant, stating that you have net assets of $2.5 million and/or that  your gross income for the past two financial years has been at least $250,000 a year. That certificate must have been obtained within six months of accepting any wholesale offer to acquire securities.

 

OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSPHY

Our philosophy is a win-win situation for the investors and the invested –“do good, and do no harm”.
We recommend investment opportunities that we personally believe in from a commercial and social standpoint while giving the required return back to the investors.

We develop and source investments with substantial EBITDA potential that often lack the capital and expertise to fulfil their potential. We de-risk and make them investment ready, with our own skin in the game. We invest in, manage, advise and stand by our projects to give them and our investors the best chance of success.

All of our opportunities are thoroughly assessed using our internal investment valuation model, covering a range of commercial, strategic, financial and geographical factors. We then record our conclusions with clear, thorough and simple documentation. This process forms primarily due diligence for our investors, and means decisions can be reached quickly.

We deal only with real opportunities – not speculation. As our pipeline changes constantly and is largely made up of confidential projects, we ask that you contact us for our latest deal sheet.
