Conexus Profile and Structure


Conexus was established in October 2006 to provide clients of Douglas Investment with exposure to private equity investments. Opportunities exist in the small to medium enterprise space for a capital partner to subscribe for equity to fund growth capital opportunities.. Furthermore, in the listed environment, smaller capitalization companies are often ignored by institutional investors that lead to mi-pricing of the shares.  Douglas Investments believes that Conexus can take advantage of these special situations by acquiring a significant minority stake and driving active shareholder management through their board and sub-committee roles.


Conexus Structure

Conexus Capital Growth Fund (“CCGF”) is the follow on fund from Conexus Investment Fund. CCGF is structured as a vesting trust and holds the private equity investments on a series by series basis per private equity deal and investors that have participated in a particular private equity deal have a vested interest represented by units in that series.

Meetings are held with investors on a regular basis to discuss the status of each investment.

The non-executive Advisory Board consists of Anthony Hewat (Chairman) and Peter Hird. The Fund is managed by Douglas Investments and is independently administered by Realfin Fund Services.
