Merchant Resource’s active, advisory practice yields robust, proprietary deal-flow from a variety of sources – much of which is invisible to the venture capital community and strategic partners. This deal-flow – coupled with the insight and knowledge generated by the firm’s unique position at the intersection of buyers, sellers, and investors – affords us the opportunity to accelerate the growth of companies through strategic, targeted investments.
We have created Merchant Resource Capital, a separate but related entity, to maximize the value of our unique perspective by making investments with high return potential – from funding a new company or to simply acquiring assets. Our philosophy is to invest in products and/or services that do a tremendous amount of good for the human condition, as well as create financial returns for our investors. The double bottom line need not entail any trade-off.
Family offices and ultra-high net worth investors want to make an impact and earn a return. However, financial services investing is so specialized that many have decide not to participate due to the risks, real and perceived. Merchant Resource Capital aims to demystify the sector by providing cultivated and proprietary deal flow, thorough due diligence and a mechanism for active management of the portfolio companies. Since we are raising Company Specific Funds, Merchant Resource is not a classic venture capital fund and not an agent.
