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.
