Umbra Capital Partners
is a private merchant bank,
advising, improving and
investing in mid-market companies.

What we do

Private, modern, aligned merchant banking.

We founded Umbra as a private merchant bank, to help solve the biggest problems facing entrepreneurs, management teams and owners. 

Our offering comprises of three distinct pillars: Advisory, Capital and Wealth. 

Our advisory function exists to offer sophisticated, unbiased, and quality advisory services for companies of all sizes. We always want to have skin in the game, so typically co-invest and roll our fees into each transaction. 

For principal investing, we invest across the capital structure in situations where we can drive value. Our family-backed, investment vehicle allows us to be flexible, fast-moving and long-term investors. 

Our wealth management offering is focused on providing a comprehensive offering at a fair cost. Our unique, tri-focus structure allows our wealth management clients exclusive access to our private capital deal flow.

Advisers with an investor mindset.

We are event-driven, and work with entrepreneurs seeking to sell, refinance or raise capital for their companies.

Our team has successfully completed hundreds of corporate finance transactions across different jurisdictions, industries and company sizes in both an advisory and investing capacity. Our investor mindset enables us to understand what investors look for and having skin in the game increases alignment and deal certainty.

Data-driven decision making.

We have a strong track record of bringing efficiencies and improving businesses by delivering growth and cost savings to our clients, borrowers and portfolio companies, as advisors, lenders and owners respectively.

We provide strategic guidance and implement appropriate technologies to identify, capture and analyse key data, which in turn facilitates better decision making.

Backed by families and long-term investors.

We invest private capital at the smaller end of the mid market. Our management investment vehicle and managed account structure enables us to take a long-term view, move quickly when required, and closely align ourselves with our like-minded clients.

We are experienced investors with proprietary deal flow access to capital and a global network.
