What Do we do ?

ORIGIN

Torch Financial Services ("TFS") is an asset management business with a mandate to seek and invest in special situations for a selected investor group.

TFS was formed through an acquisition of a strategic stake in the operations of ZeusCaps and setting up of a regulated business in Singapore (Torch Investment).

ZeusCaps, founded in 2006, had led and closed over USD 1 billion of transactions across the capital structure in a wide range of sectors. It's track record include transactions in India, Middle East, Europe and North America.

 
 

OPERATIONS AND OUR CORE CAPABILITIES

Our strength lies in our deep working relationship and a demonstrated track record with global blue chip institutional investors. We have the ability to leverage this unique position to create bespoke investment opportunities for clients.

We specialize in structuring transactions across the capital structure (debt, equity or mix) and actively seek investment opportunities in both mid-cap private and listed companies. We believe this flexibility to be one of our core advantages.

While our roots are in corporate finance and private equity investments, we are actively seeking to add further financial services capabilities to our portfolio that leverage our core strengths.


 

The nature of our transactions is always evolving. We consider ourselves to be sector/financial-structure agnostic but broadly our areas of interest include:


  •   Asset-based businesses - Operating business with clear visibility to cash flows with underlying tangible assets or solid contractual commitments.
  •   Businesses with sub-optimal capital structures - Situations where the company has leverage issues and where there is opportunity to invest directly into the business or acquire the underlying financial security (or both).
  •   Real Estate - Torch Financial Services has been targeting real estate across global markets for our core investors. We believe that if timed and structured properly, real estate offers stable, asset-backed cash flows for the long term investor.
  •  Special situations - tailored to meet a specific investor requirement.

Track Record

Since 2006, Torch Financial Services team (earlier as ZeusCaps) has closed more than USD 1 billion of transactions across a range of sectors and geographies.


Our Views

The global markets have endured a turbulent decade and question marks still remain on the strength of the recovery. While the stock markets and currencies will continue to fluctuate in reaction to short term shocks, our effort is to seek out underlying economic trends that support a serious long term investor. This includes identification of sectors, geographies and investment structures ahead of the curve that offer returns commensurate with risk (with optimal strategic hedges). We like asset backed, market leading and positive cash flow businesses that require capital to reach the next level of operational scale. This is a broad definition and we have deliberately kept it so.

We believe that the impact of Brexit and US election will reverberate across the global economy for the next 2 years. Similarly the latest developments in the FinTech space are set to change financial services in a fundamental manner. Therefore, we maintain a bias towards US and Europe where volatility will suit our penchant for opportunistic special situations.
