ABOUT CAPBRIDGE

Small bar divider

CapBridge is a global investment syndication platform for private opportunities. The co-investment platform serves mid-to-late stage growth companies and the funds that focus on them.

Our co-investment model is built with investors in mind. We first bring opportunities to lead investors, who leverage their specific industry knowledge to conduct due diligence, negotiate value adding investment structures, and manage their portfolio positions to the desired exit.

We then open up the same opportunities to co-investors as they leverage on the lead investors’ expertise in specific industry fields and diligence work. Co-investors sign with the same terms as the lead investors and realize better risk-adjusted returns and a more likely exit. Co-investors with smaller ticket sizes can also take part through Preferred Access (coming soon!).

Companies benefit from working with lead investors who understand their sector well and can directly value-add, as well as broadening the shareholder base with co-investors who can add network connectivity and assist towards a more successful listing further down the road.

The co-investment process is conducted electronically on our intelligent platform, which works ceaselessly to match deals with investors and facilitate the deal process.

CapBridge has a Capital Markets Services License and is regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. The Singapore Exchange (SGX) is a strategic partner and shareholder.  

WHY WE STARTED CAPBRIDGE

Small bar divider

We started CapBridge with the vision to help entrepreneurs, and to address a need.

The companies of tomorrow require growth capital and smart investors to help them achieve their development objectives. Entrepreneurs must have the ability to raise appropriate growth capital, and to refresh and manage their investor base, and provide liquidity to align employees and stakeholders.

Our offering is a combination of business needs, technology and innovation, created as a direct response to the radical changes and needs in the markets and regulatory environments.

The ideal growth capital is obtained when investors share deals – deal sharing leads to network effect which leads to better outcomes. Companies want a good blend of investors – a good lead investor to price, conduct diligence and structure deals, and at the same time, having co-investors to enlarge the round, diversify the investor base and expand coverage. Lead investors in turn want to spread their risk, and leverage on co-investors. Co-investors benefit by tagging along on the knowledge and due diligence of the lead investor, and have gaining to deals that they otherwise may not be able to do. Smaller ticket sized co-investors can also participate via our Preferred Allocation Portfolio which allows for investments across all live deals for portfolio diversification. This all leads to positive reinforcements, which leads to better outcomes for all.

The CapBridge primary capital raising platform was built to facilitate growth for both companies and investors. We bring the pipeline, and allow various growth opportunities to be discovered and matched, in a secure, regulated and process-optimised environment.

ADVANTAGES OF CAPBRIDGE

LEAD INVESTOR

Small bar divider
  1. Significantly Enlarged Pipeline: Companies are becoming increasingly specialized yet targeting similar global opportunities from varied locations. The CapBridge syndication and co-investment platform enables small expert investment teams to save time originating such opportunities by having them served to them in on a timely basis (i.e. when a company wants to raise capital). Our system continually improves deal matching and increases the likelihood of a match as it learns from a global transaction database, as well internal matching algorithms.
  2. Efficient Process Facilitation: We enable access to more information quicker and earlier in our process so that investments teams can assess a match and decide on whether to progress or not quickly. Our secure data room lets you view confidential company information such as audited finances, financial forecast, business plans, and other information efficiently, and then enables direct engagement with the companies quickly. This significantly expedites deal completion.
  3. Investment Amount Right-sizing: Companies often have fundraising requirements that may not exactly match investor cheque sizes. Through syndication of the opportunities, many more opportunities become available to a wider set of investors according to their preferred allocations.

CO-INVESTOR

  • Leveraging Lead Investor in Deal Making: All deals on the CapBridge syndication and co-investment platform are fronted by a Lead Investor. They leverage their industry knowledge to evaluate the deal comprehensively. With prior understanding of the space, they conduct in-depth due diligence and price the opportunities appropriately before securing win-win transaction structures with the company. Co-investors are able to leverage the diligence that was performed as well as understand the expert thesis driving the lead investor’s interest. They are also able to come in on similar terms as the lead investor.
  • Value Add by Lead Investor: Lead investors make effort in managing the portfolio, ensuring company targets are met and assist on when called upon. Co-investors are assured that the company has a value-adding partner to work alongside them.
  • Exits More Likely: Lead investors plan for exit clearly in their investment thesis and will work hard with the company to effect an exit within a reasonable time. Co-investors will be made aware of such exit plans during the investment and can take comfort that the lead investor will work towards an exit of their joint investment. This allows co-investors to plan ahead on when to recycle their capital and reinvest into future deals, thus increasing capital flow.

COMPANY

Small bar divider
  1. Fair valuation: Due to the initial intelligent matching on the CapBridge syndication and co-investment platform, and subsequent due diligence, lead investors will invest mostly in sectors and companies that they have a deeper understanding in. With knowledgeable investors, fundraising companies can focus on more meaningful discussions and expect a fairer valuation. With investors that have a better understanding, it is also more likely that deals are structured with more aligned views on milestones and the types of exit achievable. The entire fundraising experience is more efficient due to lead investor sector familiarity, as well as our platform technology that smartly facilitates the process.
  2. Greater Investor Value Add: Greater sector familiarity often comes with a relevant network in the same space alongside additional sector expertise which may be brought to assist companies as they grow. Given that we match relevant sector investors with the right companies, the opportunity for management teams to gain value add from such investors are increased, which ultimately benefits both investors and companies.
  3. More Efficient Deal Process: With highly advanced and user-friendly online tools, our platform is housed on an enterprise-grade software backbone encased with military grade security. CapBridge processes are streamlined and optimized for efficient deal closing.
  4. Broadening of Shareholder Base: Syndication of the opportunity to co-investors greatly increases the shareholder base and associated network of aligned shareholders that can be greatly helpful in preparing for a listing down the line. Companies that have raised capital on our platform have also experience over-subscription of their investment rounds, and have spaced out capital raises more, thereby investing less time on capital raising and focusing on growing.
