January 2014 saw the establishment of Bosch Capital. This comes as part of Bosch Holdings’ innovative growth strategy to provide Clients with a more holistic solution. Bosch Capital addresses a tangible demand from Clients to assist in all funding aspects of projects, products and new initiatives and will guide project developers and public sector Clients through the development process. Since the inception of Bosch Capital, there has been a
significant uptake in the new service offering by Clients of all Bosch Holdings’ operating companies, due to the benefit of having an engineering and finance discussion with only one party.
To-date, Bosch Capital has utilised the strong compliment of four chartered accountants across the Bosch Holdings’ group of companies in assisting project developers and other Clients in the following ways:
- Accessing grant funding for feasibility studies;
- Purpose built financial models;
- Structuring solutions for ring-fenced project finance transactions;
- Worked with developers through the development and capital raising process of a project.
In addition, Bosch Capital is actively working with other companies within the group to pursue new business opportunities and has finalised the group’s first investment into a renewable energy project. Further investments are in the pipeline to promote a diversification of the group’s revenue stream.
Jarred Roberts, a chartered accountant with banking and finance experience across both debt and equity transactions, will be spearheading the new company.
