Our capital solutions are designed to help our clients get where they want to go. From providing debt to equity, we work in partnership with our clients to help finance projects from venture capital, investments and developments to financing private takeover.
Principal Investments, combined with Jarden’s extensive transaction and financial structuring expertise, is uniquely placed in the New Zealand market to deliver bespoke funding solutions to its clients.
We are focused on providing the equity and junior debt required to execute transactions and grow businesses, including financing acquisitions, providing growth capital, taking pre-IPO stakes and succession planning. Principal Investments is funded using a mix of capital from the Jarden balance sheet and its existing network of private investors.
In September 2018 Australian Private Equity Firm Adamantem and Principal Investments successfully acquired a majority stake in the well known Kiwi company Hellers, through a competitive auction process. The Hellers acquisition demonstrated Principal Investments could deliver real value for clients alongside Jarden’s investment advice.
