About Aquaint Capital
Aquaint Capital is a leading global investment management firm with particular expertise in property related investment strategies. Aquaint Capital traces its roots to a coaching and seminar business, providing financial information to people who attended their seminars to enable them to make better financial decisions. Since inception, the coaching and investment club has grown to over 4,000 Seminar Members, being people who attend investment seminars or attend workshops.

Aquaint Capital's opportunistic and disciplined approach to investing has been successful since their inception. Having transacted over $360m of equity capital into real estate transactions, they have a significant track record of delivering strong, risk-adjusted returns from these investments. Aquaint Capital's opportunistic approach capitalises on their team's extensive investment experience and global viewpoint.
Aquaint Capital's offer a range of investment products to assist their clients in growing their wealth. Their products are based around their investment strategies and share the following features:
- A high conviction that the investment opportunity can be exploited in a limited-risk fashion
- The return profile of the investment is attractive
- An investment team that can ensure the successful delivery of the targeted investment results
Key to achieving their goal of not simply superior investment performance but rather superior performance with less-than-commensurate risk, is carefully managed risk management controls. Accordingly, avoiding investments with a high chance of loss is a primary concern. Aquaint Capital strongly believe that it is vastly more important to avoid mistakes than to attempt to capture every opportunity. With this in mind, they ask three key questions when evaluating a potential investment opportunity:
- What is the risk profile of the investments and how can the downside be lessened? They generally require direct access to the property (either by holding the title to the property or by having first mortgage over the property) whose open market value is much greater than the invested amount.
- Can they add value? This may be as simple as enjoying very good discounts on bulk buying of development plans to as complex as navigating the labyrinth of bureaucracy or negotiating with multiple parties.
- How will they exit the investment and in what timeframe.
