Strategy

The people we invest in are the single most important factor to a company’s success. We partner with exceptional entrepreneurs and teams, executing on game changing visions and arming them with all the resources they need to succeed. Conversion Capital spends an enormous amount of time as strategic advisors, board members and in certain cases operators, to help those entrepreneurs achieve breakout success. In addition, we leverage a carefully curated, powerful and strategic global network of early adopters. This has proven invaluable in unlocking substantial growth for our investments and helped ensure a path to sector dominance. Our capital is flexible in that it can remain active across the life cycle of a company's various stages of growth.

Investment Philosophy

Conversion Capital believes the largest opportunities in the future of Financial Services and the global economy will come from areas where attention and capital are scarce. We do not invest in mega trends or where large amounts of capital are crowding around incremental opportunities. We leverage proprietary data and research to consistently invest 5-10 years ahead of where the market is going. Our model to unlock the most interesting opportunities is repeatable, scalable and successful. We fundamentally believe the greater conceptual difference from the problem, the more novel the solution.

Conversion Capital has three main investment themes:

  • Transformational companies that create lower cost, more effficient and scalable high volume business models through a paradigm shift in behavior and or technological innovation

  • Incredible technology teams with deep domain experience and vision for their industry

  • Companies where we can affect substantial growth through our expertise and network
