Leading the way in Capital Investments

Providing accredited investors access to private placements

About us


IScapital was created by the principals behind ProactiveInvestors, a global multi-media and events organisation with intimate knowledge of the global micro, small and mid-cap markets. 
Our strength lies in our deep knowledge of equity markets in London, Sydney, New York and Toronto. Through this knowledge we view deal flow with a global perspective. We also understand what it takes to build a company from the ground up, and through our key directors, we bring a wealth of experience from all corners of the securities industry – analysis, accounting, portfolio management, securities trading, investor relations, advisory, business development and entrepreneurialism.
IScapital serves both private companies and publicly listed clients seeking to raise capital from asset managers, family offices, sovereign wealth funds and high net worth investors.  IScapital also provides advisory services to companies seeking assistance to cross list, IPO, merger or acquire or dispose of assets or businesses.  We have extensive contacts in Asia, Africa, United Kingdom, Canada, United States and the Middle East.
Our team has an in-depth understanding of numerous sectors including metals and mining, oil and gas, alternative energy, technology, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and support services.
IScapital has offices in Toronto and Vancouver, Canada.
