About

Adamantem Capital is an Australian Private Equity firm with a targeted first fund size of A$600m, focused on investing in mid-market opportunities in Australia and New Zealand with an enterprise value between A$100-500m.

Adamantem invests with conviction behind clear, well-articulated and meticulously researched value creation opportunities. We are resolute in our support of businesses and their stakeholders, but flexible in the way in which we approach each unique business partnership.

We can support businesses in the following ways: funding management buy outs and buy ins, providing expansion capital, supporting recapitalisations, funding carve-outs and undertaking private investments in public companies.

To generate outstanding returns for investors and to grow value we believe:

Business plans are more consistently achieved when incentives of management and shareholders are aligned.

We will make better investment decisions if our financial outcomes are tied to investor returns.

Investing alongside knowledgeable and like-minded stakeholders will generate superior returns.

Taking calculated risks to improve operating performance will more consistently generate attractive returns.

Fostering human capital and supporting healthier communities and environments creates long term value.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues affect the performance of the businesses in which we invest.

Doing our own deep due diligence enables better risk assessment.

Collaborating with and challenging management teams creates superior operating performance.

We embrace risk, have a relentless dissatisfaction with the status quo and are always striving to improve.

We are curious, open minded and deeply analytical.

We act with integrity and treat others with respect.

We are self-starters and persistent.

We enjoy working in close partnership with investors, management teams, advisors and each other.

We have high conviction in our decisions.

We don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Great investment returns come from businesses which contribute to their communities.
Investing responsibly is what we do, and evaluating ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) issues is a part of our risk assessment and mitigation framework for every investment opportunity. Read more about our investment approach in our Adamantem Investment Policy available here
