In a study on the future of the asset management industry by PWC (‘AM 2020’ 2013) they highlighted three major global trends within the industry as illustrated to the right. They also forecasted that by 2020 the industry will have funds under management of USD $104 trillion and around $4 Trillion in Australia alone. They predicted that alternative assets, being direct property, venture capital and private equity and infrastructure will go from 10% of the market up to 35% of all funds under management. This presents a significant opportunity for investment managers that operate in private markets like ourselves.
When you apply these forecasts to the Australian market there is potential of $1.5 Trillion that can be invested in alternative assets and particular property. Consider that our vision is to have $1 Billion of assets under management by 2021, it’s a fraction of a fraction of the market place potential.
In founding the C2 ecosystem its creators had a very clear vision of building a disruptive offering to the market that also gave the ordinary investor through to the sophisticated investor access to private markets opportunities that were normally only available to the very wealthy.
There are two main parts in our public offerings. Firstly there is C2 Capital which is an investment manager that has a fund structure and bespoke offerings allowing it to create investment product across commercial property developments and investments , Angel Investor opportunities, Venture Capital and in the future a Hedge Fund.
Secondly there is Multi BD, a commercial property development and portfolio management company that is focused in a five sector approach with the end objective of building a long term high quality property portfolio of sound investment properties for the C2 Capital funds and Capital Partners.
Bringing all of this together has been a significant journey to achieve this industry transformational approach to capitalise on these 3 global megatrends. We have been able to make this happen through the synergy of many like minded people who have their own experience and expertise in each of these areas and are dedicated to building a best of kind investment management/wealthtech ecosystem.
