Pioneer Capital is an investor in New Zealand businesses that are focused on growth in large international markets.
We have a track record of partnering with owners and managers to build value in their businesses.
Fundamental to our investment focus is the capability of management and the size and nature of target markets.
Our team has a breadth of skills and experience in operating, investing in and guiding businesses through all stages of growth and in large international markets.
We are New Zealand owned and operated and are committed to investing in a responsible manner.
Pioneer Capital partners with owners and managers of private businesses through investing $10 million - $30 million (or significantly more in partnership with our limited partners) and helping them to build value through growth.
We focus on New Zealand businesses managed by highly capable teams, expanding in large international markets, earning meaningful revenue and delivering high value products and services to their customers. Typically these businesses export the majority of their products and services.
Our investment capital primarily funds growth, which may include acquisitions. It may also provide a bridge to public markets or a change of ownership.
The foundation for our investment relies on the potential for a true partnership with owners and management and the associated alignment of interests in achieving strategic goals.
