Anchorage Capital Partners investment advice

Advised Anchorage Capital Partners, the Sydney based private equity firm focusing on special situations and turnaround investment in the Australian, New Zealand and Southeast Asian markets, on the first and final $250 million closing of Anchorage Capital Partners II. Significant interest from both existing and new investors meant that the Fund II was oversubscribed and capped at A$250 million. We also advised Anchorage in the successful close of its first fund, Anchorage Capital Partners Fund I in March 2010 which was also oversubscribed and closed at A$200 million. We have also worked with the Anchorage team on a number of acquisitions and disposals in Australia and New Zealand, including its investments in Dick Smith, Golden Circle, Burger King NZ and Total Eden.
