Our portfolio

A great opportunity half way around the world

In June 2013 we invested in Finsa, an Australian contracts for difference and spread betting white label provider. ASIC regulated Finsa carries out the complicated risk management, technology and back office services for client facing financial service firms who want to keep a close control of their valuable customer lists and brands. In a market dominated by several large firms providing rigid white label offerings Finsa's nimbleness and flexibility will give it a big edge. We liked the investment because the way the CFD market works is similar to gambling which we understand and Finsa is setting its stall out to be different in a number of ways.

The investment was complicated with legacy issues coming from a previous investor. We were able to come up with the right deal that suited all parties in a short space of time, from introduction to completion the deal took ten weeks. Finsa is now well funded and taking on customers. We co-invested with a hugely experienced management team, led by Kevin Taylor (CEO) and Paul Gazzard (COO).

The perfect match?

We like:

We look for opportunities in gambling and data businesses. We are happy working with start ups, pre-profit or established companies and don't mind if a potential deal is complex. We aren't restrained by a fund mandate. We don't shy away from advisor's fees if they bring us a great opportunity and we are happy to talk through ideas with anyone.

A few tips:

  • The more swiftly and succinctly your idea can be articulated, the more appealing it will be.
  • The more competent your core team, the more adaptable and successful your venture will be.
  • The better thought through your exit is, the easier it will be to plan the next few years.
  • The more robust your strategy, the more likely you are to stay the course to profitability.
