Anchorage Capital Partners is a specialized private equity firm that focuses on control investments in established businesses with a strong market position or brand which are not performing at their full potential, often as a result of capital constraints, lack of management attention or being a non-core ‘orphan’ in a large corporate. Target companies generally have at least A$100 million of revenue and are valued up to A$250 million. Anchorage will consider companies in a variety of sectors, however, the Firm avoids investing in technology, direct real estate or mineral exploration. The Firm will consider opportunities throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. Anchorage Capital Partners was established in 2008 and is based in Sydney.
