We work across the debt and equity spectrum and have capability to deliver from high grade to high yield capital solutions depending upon our client’s requirement.

Polestar Capital was founded to offer our clients best suited capital solutions with a view of long term continuing relationship. Ours is never a transactional approach. We never approach a client with an intent to get a deal done. We always approach our clients with an intention to add value to their business should there be an opportunity as we are not conflicted or driven by short term objectives. There are very few investment banks that offer its client true independent advise that creates long term value. Most of the time they are conflicted as they are owned by large financial conglomerates cross selling multiple products and not necessarily offering the best possible solution.
We also thrive in unique special situations that most will avoid digging deeper due to time and effort taken and in some cases intellectual capital required. We work with passion and handhold the client at every stage of the capital raising process.
