SLM Corporate is pleased to announce that it acted as corporate adviser to the shareholders of Leydin Freyer, one of Australia’s leading corporate governance, accounting, and company secretarial services firms, on the sale of the business to leading global corporate services provider Vistra.  The sale followed an expression of interest campaign managed by SLM that attracted wide interest from both local and international corporate services firms.

Established in Melbourne more than 20 years ago, Leydin Freyer has forged a position as one of the leading providers of corporate governance and accounting services to ASX listed companies. The acquisition doubles the size of Vistra’s operations in Australia, expands its footprint into Melbourne, and further solidifies it’s global position as a leading corporate service provider and fund administrator.

SLM worked closely with Arnold Bloch Leibler who acted as legal adviser to the shareholders of Leydin Freyer.

Launch of Capital H Active Fund

In Capital Raising,General News by SLM / March 31, 2021 / 0 Comments

SLM Corporate is delighted to announce that it has advised emerging fund manager Capital H Management on the successful launch and initial capital raise for Capital H Active Fund.

Capital H Active Fund (or “Active Fund”) is the second in the Capital H Management stable of funds, following the launch of Capital H Inception Fund (or “Inception Fund”) in June 2018.  Inception Fund has delivered a return (net of fees) of approx. 36% p.a. for the period from inception to 28th February 2021.

Capital H Active Fund will invest in undervalued securities, focussing on ASX-listed small and micro-cap companies, and then work to realise value in these companies through various activist strategies and campaigns.  Activism has been a significant contributor to the strong returns delivered by Inception Fund to date, and Active Fund represents the opportunity to invest in this strategy through a vehicle completely dedicated and focused on an active approach to investing.

Capital H Active Fund starts life with $8 million of seed investment, with the initial capital raise strongly support by a range of family offices and high net-worth investors from SLM’s investor network.
