2013-09-02 07:06:46 - Australian based investment house Jenepe Asset Management, in joint venture with London based IPO Capital Partners, has launched a fund targeting new listing opportunities.
The Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA) regulated fund, Jenepe IPO Capital Fund S.P., domiciled offshore in the Cayman Islands, will be managed by Nicholas Pereza-Mathews and will take positions in range of financial instruments focused on the Pre-IPO sector.
Mr Pereza-Mathews, who has over twenty years’ experience in global markets and funds management working in London and Australasia, previously managed the Australian Natural Resources Fund, a top performing fund within its class achieving sound Alpha returns under his stewardship.
Mr Pereza-Mathews says the IPO sector has vast potential for growth given there has been a lack of capital commitment available for new listings since the GFC, with IPO’s falling off dramatically each year.
“Our process is driven by performance and not asset gathering,
aiming to provide capital appreciation over the medium term,” Mr Pereza-Mathews says.
“As a seed to IPO fund we will be able to invest at an early stage of a companies intended listing which should generate significant returns when the companies complete a stock exchange listing.”
“This is achieved by investing in a diversified range of securities ranging from early stage growth companies through to established companies seeking to list on a global recognised investment exchange within a 12 month period.”
The fund’s investment process is driven by a security selection process based on ascertaining the suitability of an investment through an in-depth assessment of commercial and financial aspects of each opportunity, screened by Jenepes’ Investment Committee due diligence process.
IPO Capital Partner’s Clifford Giles says we are excited about the new opportunities presented with the Jenepe IPO Capital Fund and Jenepe Asset Management team.
“We look forward to adding value to the team from our London base as we approach our next growth phase.”
Mr Pereza-Mathews says once identified, opportunities are screened to ensure they are of an investment grade.
“A full assessment of the proposed investment is completed to establish whether the business is of a suitable quality and attractively priced,” Mr Pereza-Mathews says.
“Jenepe is a focused investment manager seeking to provide superior investment returns for institutional and sophisticated investors, managed by an experienced team with an established track record of investing in seed and IPOs.”
Jenepe also offers Global Markets and Foreign Exchange dealing and Capital Raising for sophisticated and institutional investors, with the aim to deliver profitable outcomes for clients from the one provider.
