With over 26 years of experience in managing assets of Ultra-High Net Worth Families (UHNWF), Yellow Brick Capital Limited’s founder and Chief Executive Officer set up the Company with the intent of providing a cutting-edge investments platform to select number of UHNWF and individuals.

Yellow Brick Estates Limited – The real estate management arm of the Group specialises in sourcing and executing added-value and opportunistic real estate investments. Our focus has been on identifying real assets that can be acquired at attractive valuations that are situated in locations with strong local demand and expected long-term pressure on yields. Our operational expertise allows us to increase cash flows and deliver strong risk-adjusted returns. We create value through a unique investment strategy:
Although at times we use conventional methods to source our deals, we excel in sourcing off-market deals and creating unique investment opportunities.
We strive to build unique portfolios, which include investments in both high quality income producing assets and opportunistic assets. This strategy provides sufficient cash flows which allows us to remain liquid and flexible while simultaneously enjoying alpha returns from opportunistic investments.
We excel in, office to Hotels, development and operations, office-to-residential conversions, change-of-use, residential developments (both ‘in-house’ and outsourced) and operations of HMOs and student accommodations.
We embed a flexible exit period of 12-18 month into the investment strategies. This strategy has several major implications: unlike many real estate private equity funds, our investors are not bound to sell good assets merely as a result of exit strategy constraints; moreover, this investment philosophy also allows us to take advantages of certain investment opportunities that may emerge from time to time that have this sort of flexibility.
Our private equity activities are opportunistic, but predominantly focused on investments in private companies with a proven product or service, a unique edge and protection from competitors via high barriers to entry and/or patents. The company industries vary across the spectrum but the goal is the same: outward looking growth to expand internationally, and create and generate value with a product or service that is highly desirable and conscionable. Investments have ranged from patented microchips and sensors in agriculture to innovative software used for education.
Due Diligence includes legal and industry research, technical and financial analysis. We, the investors are pooled together into a single investment vehicle. This creates more power to us as investors, board seats, voting power, rights and strong oversight. Funds are used to expedite growth and expansion.
