about us

Caravel Capital is a boutique corporate advisory firm in Singapore that provides deal origination, capital structuring and deal execution services to local and international MNCs, financial sponsors, family offices, SMEs and startups. We are former sell-side investment bankers with buy-side experience in large MNCs.

We have a track record in executing complex transactions relating to mergers & acquisitions, equity raising, principal investments, joint ventures, and project & structured trade finance.

Our mission is to materially increase the probability of deals closing for our clients. We want to provide advice that is grounded in fact-based analysis, so that our clients can make more informed strategic decisions.

The name “Caravel” originates from a class of light sailing ships of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries in Europe, much used by the Spanish and Portuguese for long voyages. Caravels were well-known for their high speed and manoeuvrability, particularly in relation to their capacity to sail upwind.

Testimonials

John has historically been a behind the scenes ‘quiet achiever’. Quite selflessly serving the front office rainmakers with his unique and insightful expertise in deal structuring and risk management. Many of the rainmakers owe John a lot of credit for the deals they have closed – which may have fallen by the way had it not been for his help.
