Wingate Corporate Investments structures and provides flexible debt solutions to businesses that exhibit a demonstrated track record, stable earnings and/or growth potential, which are led by strong management teams.
We explore a broad range of private debt opportunities, looking through to investment fundamentals, and adopting a commercial perspective to understand the specifics of the businesses and loan books.
Wingate Corporate Investments also operates Wingate’s principal investment strategy, which focuses on equity investment from Wingate’s balance sheet in financial services businesses, where Wingate can support a strong management team and incubate the business through to scale. We’re excited by innovative companies with great people and culture, where we can patiently build on strong foundations and pursue attractive growth opportunities. This is a selective investment model and can complement private debt investment, although both debt and equity investments are assessed on a standalone bases.
