PRIVATE MARKET INVESTMENTS

skybound-capital-services

Skybound’s investment strategy aims to provide investors with diversified, global exposure to private markets.

Skybound Capital uses the umbrella-term ‘Private Markets’ to describe their investments in the underlying asset classes of:

Debt, debt-equity, equity in privately-owned companies, real estate, trade finance and impact investments.

Private capital refers to funds belonging to private investors rather than banks, government entities or stock exchanges that are provided to businesses as loans or equity investments.

Skybound Capital’s funds offer exposure to asset classes with more attractive risk-return profiles relative to comparable public market opportunities. These asset classes provide protection from market noise, with low correlation to traditional assets such as listed stocks and bonds.

In so doing, we aim to provide investors with investment opportunities that provide downside protection and return generation.
