Southbank Capital provides specialised corporate advisory services principally to privately owned businesses and small to medium sized public and ASX listed companies.

Southbank Capital specifically targets Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) with a
 market capitalisation of $150 million and below, a sector, which has not traditionally been
 well serviced by financial market participants.

Critical to the continued success of Southbank Capital in servicing 
its corporate clients’  needs are:

  • Successful track record
  • Distribution strength, through its existing client base and external distribution networks
  • Incisive negotiation skills and structuring expertise
  • Discerning, personal and professional approach
  • Proactive after market and corporate advisory support
  • Southbank Capital also invests its own funds in strategic business opportunities.

Southbank Capital supports its corporate clients on an on-going basis, providing continuing
 corporate advice on and assistance with additional capital raising and mergers and acquisitions 
proposals. This on-going personal relationship with clients contrasts with a transaction driven
 approach and allows Southbank Capital to obtain a detailed understanding of its clients’
 businesses and corporate objectives.
