Jameson Capital and TTB Partners to capitalise on Australian Alternatives demand from Asia

27 September 2022

Australian-based alternative asset management firm Jameson Capital and TTB Partners ,a boutique investment and advisory firm headquarted in Hong Kong, have announced a strategic partnership that will see the firms capitalise on the growing demand in Asia for high-quality alternative investment opportunities in Australia. 

Jameson Capital, founded in 2015, specialises in alternative assets and has invested more than A$350m in real estate private equity and debt transactions providing a realised cumulative net IRR of more than 28 per cent on A$1b-plus of assets.

TTB Partners is a Hong Kong- and London-based boutique investment and advisory firm, co-founded by financiers Jonathan Bond, Teresa Teague, and Chris Scoular. The company has an extensive global network of institutions and family offices fostered over 25 years in the investment banking industry. TTB specialises in providing M&A and corporate advisory services, holds a portfolio of strategic investments across fintech, digital assets and real estate sectors, and owns partnership stakes in a variety of investment managers.

Rebranded to Jameson TTB, the firm will provide a competitive advantage to offshore investors through an on-the-ground local team. Many offshore investors without local execution capabilities have been forced to invest sight-unseen during the pandemic or avoided opportunities in Australia altogether. It will also provide TTB’s large network of global investors with greater access to alternative investments in Australia.

TTB Partners co-founder Jonathan Bond, said: “This partnership marks an exciting milestone for TTB and Jameson Capital in providing high-quality alternative investment opportunities to the growing market of investors across Asia. Combining our capabilities with an expert and skilled team such as Jameson will give our investors greater confidence to invest capital into Australia.

“We are confident Jameson TTB can become a leading alternative investment manager in Australia and Asia, and a first choice for global investors seeking exposure to this resilient market. Jameson has built an outstanding track record of delivering for global investors and we look forward to building this capability in Asia.”

Jameson co-founder and director Nick Browne, said “We are thrilled to combine our expertise and work alongside TTB, who have a strong leadership team, impressive track record and extensive global network of investors. With Australia’s relative success in the management of the pandemic presenting a target-rich environment, our local expertise puts us in a good position to leverage TTB’s relationships and guide them on Australian investment opportunities. We look forward to further strengthening our capabilities as Jameson TTB.”

Jameson TTB will continue to invest in real estate, private equity and private credit. Last year, it launched a $100m Special Situations Fund focused on secured high-yielding and distressed real estate credit opportunities in Australia, which has been well received by global investors, including key European institutions acting as cornerstone investors
