By focusing on alternative investment opportunities that can't be found elsewhere - and which are usually only available to institutions with huge reserves of capital - we enable investors to diversify their portfolio and target attractive returns outside of traditional asset classes.
Nine good reasons to choose usJoin our syndicate
Free to join
There is no joining fee for our investment syndicate. Simply complete our online register form. Then, to comply with FCA regulations, we will verify your classification as an Elective Professional Client. Once validated, we will be able to share details of live deals with you via our secure client portal.
Low minimum investment
The institutional-grade alternative investment opportunities that we provide are usually inaccessible to private investors as they demand a minimum investment of £1m and often higher. All our investments are available in units of £25,000.
Offering a range of investment opportunities allows syndicate members to make considered decisions on those that suit their own individual requirements. We believe the range and quality of our alternative investment opportunities is unmatched in the market.
With decades of professional involvement in the private equity and alternatives sector, our teams put their collective expertise, insight and networks at your disposal.
No obligation to invest
The decision to invest in any individual opportunity is always entirely down to you. Uniquely, membership of our syndicate allows you to access direct investments in private equity, private debt and commercial property as well as niche alternative asset fund strategies.
Rigorous due diligence
We undertake extensive, professional due diligence on every investment opportunity we present to clients. We often work with third parties to make sure we have the fullest insight possible. Results of all due diligence and checks are detailed thoroughly in the Investment Proposals we create for each opportunity.
Our track record
We have invested over £315m in private equity, private debt, commercial property and alternative fund strategies. So far we've returned over £178m to clients.
We pride ourselves on being accessible to our clients. Unlike some technology platforms, if you have questions relating to an investment you can always contact a member of our team by phone, email, video conference or in person at our London office. While we cannot provide investment or tax advice, we will endeavour to provide the answers or information you require. We also run a series of free to attend workshops and presentations throughout the year that focus on the different types of alternative investment that we offer.
Online performance reporting
Our secure portal gives you full access to the latest investment valuations of your holdings as well as commentary on performance. For the majority of our investments this is on a quarterly basis.
