Wingate launched in 2004 with a vision to revive the old European family merchant banking tradition, based on personal investor relationships. This meant bringing an exceptionally measured approach to risk and to its investment strategies.
While Wingate initially focused primarily on M&A advisory work, the intention was always to create an investment platform. Within a few years, Wingate launched its fund management business and began investing in property debt transactions.
Owned by its principals and a group of substantial private and institutional investors, Wingate has to date invested $7 billion of capital across the firm’s asset management, financing, and investment activities.
Wingate has also incubated several successful and now independent businesses including NOW Finance, ORDE Financial, Talaria and Fifo Capital.
