Unlock Opportunity by leveraging our Capabilities

STAC Capital’s Directors are career commercial bankers, each with over 15 years experience in structuring commercial finance for medium-size enterprises, typically with turnovers ranging from $10m to $200m. We have assisted and supported businesses as they evolve, grow, acquire, or even face significant challenges. Leveraging this experience, at STAC Capital we provide structuring advice and debt capital arrangement services for clients that seek a long-term relationship with a strategic finance partner.

In a time of rapid growth, Mark was a critical part of our team, managing our capital requirements. He took the time to understand our business, provide us with guidance and was responsive to our needs.

A Strategic Partnership with STAC Capital

While the structuring and arrangement of finance is very much core to our business, our approach is different to that of typical finance brokers.
Our Directors are actively involved with the owners, key management and external advisors of each of our clients.
We are not single deal focused, rather we value long-term mutually-beneficial relationships with our clients.
We are fiercely independent and loyal to our clients, with a pricing model that ensures we are wholly aligned with our clients’ interests - while we have strong relationships with a large number of lenders and investors, we do not have any affiliations or attachments to any in particular.
We understand the true meaning of strategy and therefore take the time to clearly understand all the factors that make up our clients' strategy, and work with them to continue to build it.
We are transparent with our pricing and align this with the interests of our clients.

Your full financial situation will need to be reviewed prior to acceptance of any offer or product.
