PHILOSOPHY

The four most expensive words in the English language are, ‘This time it’s different.’ ~ Sir John Templeton

Aligned & Loyal

Clients who are seeking capital have access to our combined 40+ years of professional experience in investment banking, private equity, corporate finance, corporate advisory and corporate law, ensuring that clients are offered only the highest quality transactions and advice. Investor interests are aligned with our own as we always co-invest.

Nimble & Unique

In order to maximise returns and provide portfolio diversification, clients are exposed to, and can approach us with, a wide range of quality investment opportunities. We are not bound by strict mandates like other firms. Clients benefit from our diligence and streamlined processes, which allow us to evaluate and execute opportunities expeditiously.

Flexible & Versatile

Clients can choose how, when and where they invest their funds as we utilise all structures (listed and unlisted debt, equity and hybrids via direct investment, trusts and sub-participations) through any stage of the business life cycle (seed, VC, pre-IPO and PE) across most sectors with specialty in property, resources, financial services and disruptive technologies.

Connected

Clients have access to our vast network of investors, advisors and investment opportunities, which de-risks, and increases confidence in, our transactions through syndicated structures and the receipt of third-party validation. The Eights’ investor network is comprised of like-minded investors with strong relationships across multiple jurisdictions, leading to further opportunities and synergies.

INVESTMENT FOCUS

We invest in businesses from early stage through to maturity by way of equity, debt and hybrids. We are prepared to look at all industries, however have specific expertise in Property, Resources, Financial Services and Disruptive Technologies.

TEAM

The Eights team have completed dozens of transactions, as principal and on behalf of clients. These transactions include direct and syndicated capital raisings (debt, equity and hybrids), IPOs, prepayments and combinations, in sectors including resources, technology, financial services and property.

COMMUNITY

The Eights is dedicated to giving back to the community, and has pledged 10% of all profit to the Granted Foundation.

The Granted Foundation Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation established in 2014, has aligned itself with like-minded charity associations in Australia and around the world to provide the basic services that many of us take for granted, including clean water, food, education, housing and employment, to the developing communities that need them most.
