Our focus is to identify and invest in high quality opportunities that result in solid returns.
Our team, led by Joseph Aaron Horowitz, is comprised of highly experienced investment professionals who have spent their entire careers operating, advising and investing across the key sub-sectors of the financial services industry.
We seek to make investments in the following sectors:
Wealth & Asset Management
Energy & Natural Resources
Payments & Financial Technology
Oil & Gas
PIR Equities has recognised that the demand for mezzanine or high yielding loans has increased significantly due to lending from the major banks being restricted, which in turn has led to some good quality credit being available for private institutions at yields well above fixed term deposit rates.
The opportunities may be either first or second mortgage on either income yielding properties or development sites. When considering mezzanine debt opportunities we do so within the following criteria:
• IRR in excess of 15% per annum
• Loan size is determined per collateral
• A term of between 6 months to 2 years
At PIR Equities we believe in the power of good advice and offer a bespoke consultancy service to select groups in our field of expertise.
Our management consulting services focus on our clients' most critical issues and opportunities: strategy, marketing, organization, operations, technology, transformation, digital, advanced analytics, corporate finance, mergers & acquisitions and sustainability across all industries and geographies. We bring deep, functional expertise, but are known for our holistic perspective: we capture value across boundaries and between the silos of any organization. We have proven a multiplier effect from optimizing the sum of the parts, not just the individual pieces.
