Who is Conqora, the company that is investing in a Nanaimo-Vancouver passenger-only ferry?
The company’s website says it is a Canadian private equity firm, headquartered in Toronto, that specializes
in creating, developing, and partnering with strong management teams in order to bring strategic real-asset backed investments to life.
“Once we have fully underwritten a transaction and committed our capital, we allow
our Limited Partners the ability to selectively invest in these diligenced and scalable opportunities that have proven and secured valuations once in steady state operations.
“Our corporate compass is guided by four critical
points that intersect in each of the investments selected to be underwritten. We believe in the inherent stability of underlying real assets, creating value-differentiation through technology, innovating using entrepreneurial mindfulness, and committing to
making investments that positively affect the communities in which we invest.
“Our investment thesis is based on a partnership model and a programmatic-based approach. We seek to invest development capital in strategic partners
who have the expertise, leadership, and experience to build out a platform in sectors based on real assets with compelling market forces.
“Conqora utilizes its own at-risk development capital to originate opportunities and
brings to market only those deals vetted through its rigorous due diligence process, which means investment partners see underwritten opportunities that are ready to execute on tight and efficient timelines.
“We take the lead
role to fully underwrite direct investment opportunities, that are vetted by top tier advisors, prior to syndicating the investment to a select group of Family Offices, Asset Managers, Institutional Funds and High Net Worth Individuals.”
