MERCHANT PLACE

INVESTMENTS 

Merchant Place Investments is a private investment company with offices in Sydney and Brisbane.  Our investor clients are some of Australia’s most successful families and charitable foundations.

Merchant Place invests in businesses that consistently generate cash flow for their owners — we call these enduringly profitable businesses.  We do not follow the “aggressive growth, high risk approach” associated with private equity.

The firm is owned by its principals.  Our team are experienced private company investors, having completed over 30 platform business acquisitions.  We also bring extensive operational experience at the CEO, CFO, and COO level and have successfully operated a number of our own businesses.
