With offices in Hong Kong and London and representation in various other places, Stanhill focuses on a number of investment themes based on a long-term strategy that emphasizes creativity and speed in evaluating and acting upon potential opportunities. A hallmark of the Stanhill approach is patience and an approach that looks beyond quarterly and annual performance measures.
Stanhill originated in Hong Kong and the business is staffed by seasoned professionals with a direct investment track record in complex capital markets and M&A transactions in a variety of sectors and jurisdictions.
An important component of the Stanhill Group is the Stanhill Special Situations Fund, a Cayman Islands domiciled vehicle with a focus on event-driven and distressed special situations across all markets. Investments are mainly in corporate restructurings through distressed debt, private and public equity and equity linked securities. Historically the fund has been most active in the natural resource area and has led contested takeovers. The Stanhill Special Situations Fund often partners with other investors in taking stakes in situations that have been heavily researched and analysed. The investment horizon is very long term. Transactions that have been completed by the Fund include Novus Petroleum, Tethyan Copper, Orchard Petroleum, Indophil Resources, Lodore Resources and the backing of Sovereign Gold and Touchstone Gold.
