About Us

Consistently challenging. Always invested.

Over 11 years we have invested in and operated high-potential businesses in markets with historically low levels of client service and trust. This has given us untapped opportunities for disruption, innovation, and high returns. Our businesses leverage specialised knowledge, data and technology to deliver competitive solutions, benefiting clients and advancing their industries. They are led by a team of expert, entrepreneurial, and significantly co-invested professionals who relentlessly challenge the status quo to drive profitable growth.

Our group is connected by a common thread of entrepreneurship and integrity. This forms the foundation of our culture which filters into each of our businesses, giving us the ability to respond effectively and ethically to complex market dynamics. Merging this entrepreneurial drive with collaboration enables us to create net positive socio-economic returns with long-lasting shared value outcomes.
