Real Partnerships

How we operate

Nash Capital is a growth investor looking to partner with owners and management of medium sized businesses across Australia and New Zealand to drive long-term value for shareholders.

We seek to quickly understand a business and investment via meetings with management and shareholders. We aim to agree on a term sheet in a matter of weeks, investing significant time and effort to ensure all parties are aligned from the outset. Upon exclusivity, we target completion within 8 weeks. During this time, we seek to agree on a 3-year business plan and a 100-day post-transaction plan prior to completing the investment. We remain committed to the execution of these plans and continue to work with the owners and management team throughout our investment period.
