About us

Determined dealmaking,
based on quality relationships.

Who we are

Emanate Capital is a boutique corporate and structured finance advisory firm, specialising in sustainability and the energy transition.

We provide our clients with independent structured and corporate finance advice, covering debt and equity, buy side and sell side, for public and private companies, joint ventures and projects. We provide support at any point in the journey from start-up and growth, through M&A, to recapitalisation and exit.

Launched in 2020, Emanate Capital draws on over 40 years of successful experience in renewable energy, sustainable infrastructure and real asset investments. This gives us a profound understanding of the needs and requirements of those requiring funding, and those seeking investments.

We connect innovative and exciting projects and assets with committed debt and equity investors. 

This enables all parties to play a role in addressing the clean energy funding requirement leading to net zero – which the IEA estimates to be around US$4 trillion annually.

What makes us different

Technical understanding and resources

We have a strong technical understanding of your business or project, and the financing and structural alternatives available to deliver it, while always considering your long-term growth, funding and exit requirements.

Dynamic and bespoke solutions

With a willingness and ability to find bespoke solutions, we draw on experience across infrastructure, energy and real assets. Not constrained by traditional deal structuring or siloed approach, no potential solution is left untested.

Long founded quality relationships

Quality relationships with most major and niche investors, with the shrewdness and guile to focus on those most suited to any transaction, offering the greatest likelihood of success.

A strong track record and determination

A determination to get the deal done, based on a clear alignment of interests, that ensures clients reap benefits efficiently and effectively.
