Welcome to Belay Capital

We like to Invest

A sailing vessel will attach its running rig using a Belay. This simple fixing is critical for the vessel to chart its course. Since 2016, we have been making simple investments in private companies. Let us help your business chart its next course.

Belay Capital are now a leading private equity fund focused on small to mid-size businesses.


Our Criteria

We seek out businesses with an operating profit of between $5 - $20 million p.a. We look for business with strong management, in an industry that can provide ample room for growth over a three to five year period. Our investment can assist businesses through succession planning, pre IPO funding, organic and acquisition expansion, management buy-outs/buy-ins or public-to-private transition.


Our Approach

We take a collaborative approach to investing, both with the business we invest in, as well as with our investment partners. We seek to develop strong relationships with founders and managers to deliver value and growth. We always aim to provide support to management where we can add or introduce value, without encroaching on any managers day to day operational expertise. Our investment approach is flexible, we invest both directly, or co-invest and will take either a minority or majority interest.


Opportunities for Business Owners and Managers

We are always on the lookout for good businesses and good people. 

Our goal is to invest in businesses looking for growth capital or managers who have identified transition opportunities within their organisation. 

We understand the importance of ensuring those making daily decisions are incentivised appropriately and we have experience in structuring transactions so that management are appropriately rewarded. 

If you own or work within a business looking for capital or change, we look forward to hearing from you.
