About Us

Who we are

ResAm Capital is a niche financial services company. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver nimble and efficient financial services and products. We provide both discretionary and non-discretionary services across a variety of assets classes and investment products.

ResAm seeks out niche investment opportunities not readily available through most investment managers. This shows the entrepreneurial spirit in our DNA. Understanding the risks associated with these opportunities lie at the heart of our approach. This gives our clients the prospect in diversifying their investment portfolios in a prudent manner.

This investment philosophy is garnered from our approach where we put our clients first and we are uncompromising about ethics, trust and accountability. To show our commitment to our investors, and approach to risk management, we invest our own funds in the same products.

As co-investors in the business, our interests are aligned with those of our clients. This means we strive for investment projects and opportunities that generate sustainable returns, as we do not allow personal account trading. We grow what you value!
