About Us

Chatham Capital Exchange was founded by James McGill, George Wilson and Kim Scott.

As Chatham Capital Exchange’s founders and Executive Directors, James, George and Kim leveraged their combined 60 years of experience in a range of financial markets and industries to develop the Chatham Capital platform.

With the support of the Chatham Capital Exchange team, they now partner with unlisted companies to access the investment and capital markets via the Chatham portal. These markets include the broad network of Private Equity, Venture Capital, Family Office and sophisticated investors that have been established through the relationships of the Chatham Capital founders and team members.

What We Do

Chatham Capital Exchange is a privately held Advisory and Investment Facilitation firm that specialises in advising on business planning and preparation for and facilitating capital raisings with established and emerging private companies.

Point of Difference

Chatham Capital is not your typical corporate advisory firm. We are industry agnostic and work with emerging and established companies where we can add value and have a belief in the underlying business model and management team.

We charge a Fee for Service for growth advisory work and a Success Fee for successfully facilitating a capital raising. 

We will, when the right opportunity exists, invest our own capital or ‘sweat equity’ in start up or emerging companies.

We typically partner with (and invest in) companies who meet some or all of the following criteria:

  • Proven businesses model (or prototype) with quality management (and advisory board)
  • Scalable business with plans for significant value uplift within 12 to 24 months
  • Potential exit via strategic sale or IPO within 3 – 5 years
  • Head Office in Australian or South East Asia

What We Can Help With

  • Private Capital Raisings
  • Transaction structuring and advice
  • Trade Sales and Strategic Exits
  • Business De-Risking
  • Preparation for Becoming Investor or Exit Ready
  • Strategic / Corporate Advisory and Business Planning

What We Don't Do

We don’t hold an AFSL to provide financial advice – our focus is on corporate planning and activity that supports the growth of a privately owned firm or the transition of ownership from one group to another.

We don't seek to replace your Accountants or Lawyers. We work closely with your existing professional services team and can provide introductions to expert service providers if required.
