KES 7 Capital Inc. (“KES 7”) was formed in October, 2013 and is a “hybrid” merchant bank that targets bespoke investments for both its own capital and that of its funding partners, that include institutions, family offices and high-net-worth individuals.
We specialize in creating and/or finding high-quality, high-growth, public or private companies. Our areas of expertise include energy, healthcare, technology, industrials and real estate.
KES 7 is split into 2 divisions:
- KES 7 Merchant Bank: The partners and board at KES 7 invest their own capital directly into companies where we feel there is appropriate alignment with management. Where appropriate we also invite our institutional and family office partners to invest alongside us. We can participate at any level within the capital structure and, once invested, we will advise the company on all aspects of the capital markets, from M&A, debt and equity financings and public listings. KES 7 will only invest where it believes it can be a valued-added partner to the investment.
- KES 7 Trading: We provide liquidity through a “grey market” or “over-the-counter” (OTC) trading operation. This allows “permitted clients” (such as institutional investors) and “accredited” individuals to purchase or sell private company securities. Since inception, KES 7 has traded over 330,000,000 securities in private companies.
