Salter Brothers participate in a range of equity investments.

Salter Brothers has several dedicated investment funds focused on investing in various asset classes, including unlisted and listed operating companies.
The mandate for each fund varies, but each gives access to high-quality assets that have been subjected to a detailed due diligence process and submitted to an experienced Investment Committee prior to investment.


Private Equity Fund

The Private Equity Fund* provides investors with access to investment opportunities in high growth Australian private companies, requiring expansion or growth capital.

The Fund’s investment strategy is to invest exclusively in small to mid-market growth companies with investments made via equity and/or convertible equity instruments. Investments are in established businesses with:

  • growing revenues.
  • high operating cash flows, and
  • EBITDA of up to $A15 million.

This represents numerous successful Australian companies that require capital for various stages including:

  • Product and/or service growth;
  • Domestic and/or international expansion; and
  • Recapitalisation of balance sheet.

* The Private Equity Fund (SBG Private Equity Fund, LP CAV registration number L0000480H) is an Australian Incorporated Limited Partnership under the Partnership Act, registered as a Venture Capital Limited Partnership under the Venture Capital Act.

The Private Equity Fund is a registered Venture Capital Limited Partnership Fund (“VCLP”).

Most Australian VCLP ‘s focus their mandates across seed, angel and early stage funding, making many smaller type of investments ($50-500k) across numerous start-ups, exposing the VCLP to a greater degree of risk, as they rely on substantial returns from one company to offset the losses in others.

In contrast the Private Equity Fund focuses on high growth Australian private companies, requiring expansion or growth capital.

Below is sample of some of the operating companies we are invested in within this Fund and others within the wider Salter Brothers group.
