The financial system is witnessing an increased demand for small ticket, structured liquidity solutions - especially among smaller financial institutions that need to exit non-core investments. Parallely, the emerging wealth management sector in Asia retains a preference for real assets and businesses rather than secondary market financial assets. A significant gap remains, in that, large firms have increased threshold deal sizes and counterparty criteria, while smaller firms lack the deal experience and capital to provide the required solutions. In addition, overall diminished credit appetite among global and regional banks and reduced AUM in alternative investment managers has exacerbated the credit scarcity in several sectors in the region.


Mount Nathan has been active in this space with a few proprietary investments and is deploying capital in an opportunistic fashion. Mount Nathan is addressing these financing gaps strategically by pursuing a long term course of seeding and incubating specialist finance providers in the region.
