New platform to focus on investing in unique disruptive technologies and real estate investments
London, 02 November 2017 - RYSE Asset Management LLP (“RYSE”), the investment and advisory boutique, announces the launch of its investment management services platform. The RYSE platform has been developed based on the team’s extensive experience of delivering bespoke investment solutions. Tailored for high net worth individuals, family offices and institutions, the platform seeks to facilitate investments into early stage companies pursuing innovative disruptive technologies across a number of sectors.
RYSE intends to build a diversified portfolio of companies that include digital health, cyber security, internet, food technology, educational technology, financial technology and property technology.
Commenting on the announcement, Shabir Chowdhary, Managing Partner of RYSE Asset Management said: “We have launched RYSE’s platform with the aim of investing in early-stage companies which offer compelling investment avenues. Our approach seeks to diversify portfolios by investing across a range of potentially high growth companies pursuing technological innovation in their respective fields.”
Claudio D’Angelo, Managing Partner of RYSE Asset Management added: “Although we are reasonably sector agnostic, our focus lies in digital health, food technology, cyber innovation/security and property technology, given the emergence and growth of breakthrough technologies in these sectors. We intend to select some of the highest calibre partners in these areas to assist us in screening, validating and selecting unique investment opportunities.”
RYSE aims to make investments of between £250,000 and £2 million across a number of companies. Over the course of 18 months it aims to make between 50 and 100 investments across the sectors shortlisted for initial investment.
A further area of significant interest and expertise within the firm is its exposure to real estate, income generating assets as well as direct development opportunities in the UK. RYSE is particularly interested in high density developments at the more affordable end of the market which includes exposure to Private Rental Sector (PRS) schemes and working closely with Local Authorities and Housing Associations to assist in tackling the shortage of high quality social housing stock. Although this is likely to be a continual theme within the portfolio, RYSE still intends to maintain its exposure to high quality, high specification apartment-led and housing development schemes in Central London and Surrey suburbs.
Shabir Chowdhary added: “The UK faces a challenging economic environment ahead given the general global macro and political uncertainty. Significant demand exists to bridge the gap between the banks and other lenders to real estate. We see this as an opportunity to further expand our interests within direct and indirect real estate investment. The development opportunities we have, and currently pursue, continue to generate attractive non correlated returns to the broader public markets.”
