Why private

Because it’s too big to be ignored. Out of the $79tr investable assets, only $4.5tr are private markets (private equity and real assets).  They represent an important part of the world economy, yet difficult for most investors to access.

At SYZ Capital, we also believe that diversification is key. Financial literature and empirical evidence demonstrate that private markets can deliver superior returns compared to traditional asset classes. Moreover, investors often benefit from attractive diversification when private market investments are included as part of a broader portfolio of assets.

What sets
us apart

SYZ Capital aims to offer unique access to select niche opportunities across Private Markets and Direct Investments.

Our goal is to offer a curated investment experience in segments of private markets overlooked by most traditional investors because of their size, complexity or inadequate duration. SYZ Capital strives to ensure alignment of interest of all parties by being actively involved in every transaction it undertakes.

We also offer an access to direct investment opportunities on a standalone basis, or as part of a diversified multi-position and/or multi-manager offering.

The experienced management team of SYZ Capital is able to fully leverage its network and expertise to deliver a robust and flexible offering.

Beyond capital, we're interested in your projects.
