About Us


We provide a unique range of alternative investment products to financial advisors, institutions, and family offices.


Skybound Capital has developed a distinctive approach to investing.

Over the years, we have challenged conventional wisdom and traditional approaches by employing alternative and innovative investment opportunities that differ from the typical market offering.


Our investment strategy offers investors a diversified, global exposure to Private Markets, encompassing various asset classes such as private debt, debt-equity, private equity, real estate, trade finance, invoice financing, and impact investments.


Our objective is twofold: to provide investment opportunities that not only ensure downside protection with the goal of protecting investors’ existing wealth, but also aim to enhance its growth by generating consistent, uncorrelated, positive returns over the medium to long term. Additionally, Skybound Capital promotes responsible, impact and sustainable investing, while preserving financial performance.
