Catallyst Advisors seeks out remarkable investments and investment strategies and introduces those to our institutional and HNW networks.

The Catallyst Difference

We have no corporate imperative to meet budgets or profit targets. We do not introduce an investment for any reason other than being “remarkable.”

We will wait for as long as it takes to identify what we believe to be a remarkable investment opportunity and only then introduce it to our network of investors.

We’re Focused On Finding Special Investment Opportunities & Strategies:

Our Key Philosophical Drivers

We are not investment advisers

Whilst we do provide advice and assistance to professional Investment and Wealth Managers, as well as others seeking to raise capital,  we don’t provide investment advice. 

The efficacy of any investment can only be ascertained by reference to the subjective circumstances, risk tolerance and objectives of each potential investor. We identify investment opportunities without knowledge of these criteria. The investment opportunities we introduce are not appropriate for all potential investors.

We are investors and investment introducers.  We introduce investments or investment strategies to institutional and sophisticated investors – those who understand that their subjective circumstances, risk tolerance and investment objectives are a critical fundamental ingredient in determining the efficacy of any of their investments. It is not part of our offer to address investment suitability for any investor.
