Bamford Capital

OVERVIEW

Bamford Capital is an impact-driven alternative assets investment management and corporate advisory firm specialising in Private Equity, Private Debt and Real Assets.  We strive towards achieving sustainable outcomes with enhanced financial returns as well as positive social and environmental impact for all stakeholders.  As an active manager and advisor, we work closely with a carefully selected group of companies and firms with medium to long-term strategic investments.

 

Our private equity investment activities, both buy-side and on behalf of our advisory clients, range from venture and growth capital to buyouts targeting small to mid-cap companies to ASX 200 listed companies in Australia, as well as international businesses and firms within our ecosystems in the US, UK, the EU and Asia.

 

A key driver for us on the buy-side is to establish an in-depth understanding of each business, the inherent (and latent) opportunities and their relevant context, which we then consolidate into specific financial models. We create robust yet flexible simulation tools to focus and strengthen our analysis and underpin all strategic decisions and valuation scenarios.

 

As corporate advisors, we work best with companies where the Bamford team have prior industry experience and where we can add significant long-term value to each business providing a whole suite of services that go beyond just raising capital

FOCUS

Our investment philosophy is to focus on opportunities in which we have relevant domain expertise and we genuinely believe have major upside potential, manageable risks and that are aligned with our core values. And as a team we only get involved if we are all passionate about it and if there is positive impact potential.

 

What truly sets us apart is our relentless curiosity, drive and passion to support our portfolio businesses and advisory clients to excel and succeed by directly and closely working with management and all relevant stakeholders all with a view to building long lasting and perpetual, positive commercial, social and environmental outcomes.
