Simba Capital was founded in 2004 by Jørgen Smeby to provide alternative investment managers with access to an extensive global network of professional investors including Institutions, Family Offices, Fund of Funds and High Net Worth Individuals. We talk to investors globally, although our key areas of expertise are pan-European investors.
We strive to provide the highest level of dedicated and professional service to a select group of managers and aim to create long-term relationships to source, retain and grow capital. We have developed trusted relationships with investors, we have an understanding of their needs and so are able to advise managers on shaping their products for the most effective capital sourcing.
In terms of notable direct transactions, in 2019 Simba Capital arranged up to £270m funding for Jurassic Fibre, an Exeter-based ultrafast, full fibre optic broadband business building a network across Devon, Somerset and Dorset. Jurassic is offering a 21st century broadband solution to 350,000 homes and businesses across the South West, with phase one due to be rolled out, between Exeter and Exmouth, in late 2019. In 2017, Simba Capital advised on a £300m sale of a UK operational solar power portfolio to a UK pension fund and negotiated a 25 year management contract over the assets for their client.
Simba Capital is based in London and is regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority.
