What We Are About

Independent since 2008, and determinedly so now, we adopted the Armillary name in 2009.

The name derives from the armillary sphere that the Greeks used to solve astronomical problems. It seemed a fitting metaphor for what we do as a business, navigating the way through sometimes dark and stormy waters.


Our investment banking services include raising debt/equity, selling/buying businesses, and mergers. We offer advisory services for business decision making, governance, valuations and independent reviews. We provide financial training, asset management, and operate markets for capital raising, liquidity, and value creation through direct investments in alternative asset classes.

You can judge us by the company we keep.
Our track record and case studies speak for us far better than we can.

Mezzanine capital, also known as mezzanine financing, is a hybrid of debt financing that fills the gap between senior debt and equity in the capital structure of a company.

What is mezzanine financing?

Mezzanine financing refers to a type of funding that sits between senior debt and equity in the capital stack. It is typically used to support expansion, acquisition, or recapitalisation efforts.

Mezzanine financing involves providing capital to a company in exchange for a subordinated debt instrument that pays a higher rate of interest than traditional senior debt but a lower cost of capital than equity.
