Given the current global low-yield environment, investors are looking into new asset classes to complement and diversify their portfolios in the pursuit of risk- adjusted returns. They are also becoming increasingly conscious about the social and economic impact of their investments. At the same time, more than 300 million adults in the Southeast Asia region are currently unbanked or underbanked, greatly limiting their access to financial and credit solutions. This environment creates strong supply and demand dynamics for alternative lending, with the need for trustworthy investment firms to bridge funding gaps in the sector.

In this context, Helicap intends to become the go-to partner for both investors and alternative lending platforms in the region, offering its services through two wholly-owned subsidiaries:

Helicap Investments is a Registered Fund Management Company (RFMC) with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (“MAS”). It manages a diversified portfolio of SME, microfinance, and consumer loans, directly and indirectly originated by 300 partners in Southeast Asia and Australia.
