Global Private Capital


We are at the forefront of a modern approach to private equity investing that targets superior outcomes for our clients with greater control. 


  • A platform with scale. A$5.23 billion1 2 of discretionary AUM.
  • Demonstrated track record.  We have outperformed the public markets since our inception in 2005.
  • Stable, experienced team. Led by our founding partners, the team comprises 14 investment professionals 2 located across Australia, the United States and Europe.  The team’s experience dates back to the early days of the industry.
  • Multiple access points. We access opportunities through direct, co-investment, secondary and fund investments.
  • Sector focused.  We are thematic investors with a specific focus on health care, consumer (including food and agribusiness), and technology sectors.
  • Investors not allocators. Our team targets high conviction strategies and leverages strong investment partnerships to generate returns above the public markets.
  • Tailored relationships. We craft portfolios based on our clients’ unique requirements.  We maximise our clients direct access to our senior investment professionals and increase their returns in an environment where the most attractive opportunities are limited in nature.

What we believe

We believe private capital investing is much more than its perception of leveraged buy-outs.  We are operationally-focused investors targeting investment themes and strategies that provide capital to build successful companies around the world.  This ranges from investing in start-ups in the USA and China to taking direct ownership of one of the largest beef producers in Australia.



Our modern investment approach drives our core aim of generating superior returns for our clients above the public markets over the long term. To do this we invest in great companies within attractive themes.  We do not fill fixed stage, strategy or geographic allocations.

We target high conviction strategies in our targeted sectors.  Then we find the best access points. 

Client relationships matter to us and their desired outcomes drive everything we do. Our approach provides clients with greater control, flexibility and increased transparency, combined with a strong focus on environment, social and governance (‘ESG’) factors.
