North Ridge Partners is an independent merchant bank that invests in and advises technology companies within the Asia Pacific region.
We leverage our deep experience in buying, building, financing, running, and selling technology businesses to drive value for our investors and clients alike.
Our industry expertise, intellectual capital and track record have been honed over many years. We value long term relationships and seek to achieve high performance outcomes from a foundation of trust.
We provide strategic advice, execute M&A and capital raisings and deploy capital to support transactions we see value in.
North Ridge Partners is a joint venture between its management team and the Victor Smorgon Group, a prominent Australian family office. We have offices in Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne, and an extensive network of global partners.
Our name derives from the Northeast Ridge of Mount Everest. Climbing this Tibetan traverse ranks among of the most formidable accomplishments of human endurance. We like the metaphor.
Before we founded North Ridge Partners in 2002 we were comprehensively trained by the big end of town. With decades of international corporate finance experience behind us, we are independent thinkers who bring skill and discipline to the table.
We have collectively completed hundreds of corporate finance assignments including strategic analysis, restructurings, capital raisings and M&A.
Our skills are the result of our real-word experience at the coal face, so we understand the challenges that technology companies face. We know how to figure out and execute the steps required to fund growth and maximise value.
Our home ground is Southeast Asia and Australasia, where we provide localised, expert advice. We regularly engage in cross-border transactions with our global network.
North Ridge Partners has been investing in technology companies for more than a decade through bull and bear markets.
We invest in, finance and run technology businesses. We apply this unique skillset plus our own capital to a handful of companies at a time. We prefer to invest in publicly quoted companies that need transformational work to reach their potential, and we aren’t afraid of doing the heavy lifting to deliver attractive investment returns.
We manage capital for around 50 family offices and high net worth individuals around the region, and ourselves, through the Co-Investor series of Funds. We focus on preserving our investors’ capital and have a track record of delivering consistent returns.
