Risk Capital

Across our international network of offices, SEAF’s investment team seeks to provide promising small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with customized financial products adapted to the unique economic, cultural, and regulatory requirements of each of our markets. Our investments take the form of equity, mezzanine, and term credit.

Equity

SEAF will invest through common or preferred stock to take an equity ownership position in portfolio companies. We will typically take minority positions with significant governance and information rights, but may elect to take majority positions for certain opportunities.

Mezzanine

SEAF’s mezzanine investments are generally subordinated loans that combine current interest payments with a participation in revenue, earnings growth or enterprise value.

Term Credit

SEAF also provides lines of credit, working capital loans, and trade financing for certain companies.
