We are an investment management and advisory firm exclusively focused on the international transportation industries. We were founded in Singapore in late 2013 and we are owned by the senior management team. Our partners have unparalleled expertise and experience in all financial and operational aspects of the transportation industries we focus on.
Transportation is a global and very capital intensive business. The industry is cyclical and operators typically employ high financial leverage. Understanding the global operating challenges and being able to judge the cyclicality and appropriate capital structures are necessary ingredients for successful investing in the industry. It takes significant operating experience and substantial financial sophistication to successfully navigate in transportation investing. It is with this conviction in mind that we set out to found Transport Capital and to assemble our unparalleled team of industry experts.
We believe Singapore is the perfect base for a transportation focused investment management and advisory firm. Singapore is a global transport hub and amongst others the home of one of the world’s most admired airlines, one of the best airports in the world, a top three global container port and the world’s top two rig builders. Beyond that Singapore is a major financial centre with global leadership positions in transport finance, private wealth management and alternative asset management. Transportation represents about 10% of Singapore’s GDP, ensuring the sector unwavering support by the Singapore government.
