Capitama Network annual investment capacity exceeds GBP10bn


Capitama, a global direct private investment platform for sophisticated and professional investors, has reported that its members have exceeded GBP10 billion in annual investment appetite.

Analysis of the registered investors on Capitama, which includes circa 400 individuals, family offices, PE firms and investment offices, revealed that its members are willing to devote over GBP10 billion annually to private investment opportunities and philanthropy.
Private Equity is the most popular theme amongst the Capitama network, with investors willing to dedicate GBP7.2 billion annually to these opportunities. Registered investors indicated that they would be willing to provide a further GBP2.3 billion for Debt and Income investment opportunities, whilst interest in Philanthropic and Social Impact opportunities reached GBP400 million. Of the nine different investment types Capitama has, the most popular are Growth investments, followed by Early Stage, Buy-Outs, Real Estate and Infrastructure.
Brett de Bank, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Capitama, says: “The fact that investors are using Capitama to pursue GBP10 billion worth of deals is a fantastic achievement and strong validation of the business, but we truly believe it is just the start. It is great to see Capitama becoming an established participant in the private capital market space as a source of deal flow for professional investors globally as we continue to build capacity and momentum. There is a wide range of opportunities available to private investors and it is great to see that so many have an interest in Philanthropic and Social Impact prospects, alongside commercial growth and early-stage opportunities. We look forward to helping more companies achieve their potential through this type of ongoing and sustained investment.”
Simon Ramery, Co-Founder and CEO at Capitama, says: “We launched Capitama with the express purpose of matching investors with high quality investment opportunities in the private markets as we believe this is where the most impact can be made in the economy. These findings show that there is significant global demand to invest and donate in high quality private investments and our role is to ensure we work with the best deal sponsors and scale-ups so we can help them raise capital as efficiently as possible. We expect this appetite to grow further over the coming months and look forward to playing our part.”
Capitama currently has 18 live opportunities, including Simba Sleep, an online mattress supplier and one of the UK’s fastest growing companies; Quiqup, an innovative on-demand, last mile logistics services and solutions company; and City Harvest, a food redistribution charity. Via Capitama, City Harvest is seeking GBP2.5m of additional investment to deliver 23,000 nutritious meals a week to those living in poverty in London.
