About Us

Established over 25 years, the company is somewhat different today, however our core values remain the same; integrity, trust and transparency.

Through the development of communication the world is a much smaller place, global business is more local than we think. Over the years we have built strong relationships and partnerships across a number of market sectors, enabling our company to seek out opportunity where others are not looking. 

We have a first-class wealth management team with unrivalled investment experience in emerging and frontier markets combined into a single concentrated strategy.
