The cornerstone of the firm’s investment approach and ethos comes from years spent by our founding partner as
the head of investments for a significant American owned family office, managing and trading in a portfolio of companies throughout Australia, Asia, Africa, India, Europe and the Middle East. In 2000 he established Harvest Global
Management Limited, an independent advisory practice specialising in turnarounds, restructuring and debt management.
The company was successful in securing a 3 year contract to manage a significant portfolio of holdings and joint ventures in India on behalf of an Atlanta based family office. The firm added projects in real estate investment, Collateralised Loan Obligation’s and investment fund recovery services in the Middle East and South Africa for various clients and banks to its
list of projects. In 2004 the consulting arm of the firm was sold to US investors as new projects were secured and the focus
of the company shifted to operating in the USA. In 2006 the property investment division in South Africa was sold through
a Management Buyout.
Over the years we have attracted key personnel from a variety of financial backgrounds and our team has grown to include members that each complement the range of expertise available to our clients and investors. Our background has also provided us the opportunity to establish a competent and wide reaching network of professionals whom we trust and with whom we have worked over the past 25 years. These include specialist lawyers, finance professionals, trustees and administrators adding to our ability to draw on the skills as a team that add true value to the projects or companies in which we invest.
Each of our practices run as an independent business alongside each other, however, we work together to create and realise genuine equity value for our partner companies, projects and investors alike. Our investment team has collectively over the past 25 years originated, executed and managed investments in companies, trusts, funds, real estate and commercial aircraft leasing valued in excess of £2.5bn. Our real estate team has extensive financing, management and development experience, with the single largest real estate asset being valued at circa £500m.
We have managed companies as both advisors and private equity partners and have a successful track record of turnarounds of companies, funds and leveraged projects. The establishment of our Asset Management business was a natural progression which drew on the foundations of our private investments and advisory practices and it continues to grow, becoming a successful and focused investment choice to private clients, discretionary managers, family offices and trustees.
