Montcalm Capital’s Story

We create investment offerings that match risk with returns, and reconnect investors with the performance of the companies they invest in.

We believe in investments that make a positive impact in the world – without sacrificing returns.

Why Create New Offerings

Public markets no longer do what they were set up to do: flow capital into companies, and give investors the opportunity to participate in the performance and cash flows of these companies.
In 2018, buying a stock is betting on market pricing, which is almost entirely controlled by factors unrelated to the companies themselves.
We can’t evaluate the risk and advise on which stocks to purchase, because we can no longer see the factors that control their value.

How it Works

We structure capital investments outside public markets to fuel the growth of maturing companies with a strong foothold in what they do.
Montcalm is deeply experienced in capital markets and the risk factors that drive success, so we vet each investment with institutionallevel due diligence.
With this thorough understanding of risk and potential reward, we collaborate with stakeholders to create offerings that align with the best interests of investors and of the companies receiving the capital.

Tearing Out The Page,
And Starting Again.

We’re rethinking what investment means.


Currently, institutions and the very wealthy hold nearly all access to high caliber investments.


But we think everyone has the right to be involved in the success of a company and
actually participate in our capital markets in a way that serves them well.


Instead of thinking in rigid terms of debt or equity, we co-create ways to flow capital so it benefits all stakeholders— including the world at large.
