Proprietary Investments

Strand Hanson uses its own resources to invest in carefully selected opportunities where the team can identify future growth potential.


Strand Hanson operates a genuine merchant banking model, making direct investments from our balance sheet into assets and companies identified as having high growth potential.

This capability enables us to take advantage of unique or early stage investment opportunities that are identified internally, whether in London, via our African office, or through our network of representatives, contacts and clients.

Being management owned, we are also able to offer flexibility in fee structures which may allow us to take a portion of our fees in equity or quasi-equity, which may be of particular interest and benefit to earlier-stage businesses.

To date many of Strand Hanson’s interests have been in jurisdictions in which it has previously acted in an advisory capacity and where our local knowledge, often enhanced by our network of contacts, enables us to make informed investment decisions.
