Speciality Finance Lender of the Year

Charismatic Capital Ltd

The Singapore-based firm represents an unusual combination of non-bank lending and public markets as an originator of loans secured against Asian listed equities. Since 2014, it has found demand for its services increasing as financial institutions in the region have tightened their credit activities.

“At the moment there is no other existing fund in the market that specializes in stock financing the way we do,” Charismatic founder Lam Ching Ching claimed in an interview with Private Debt Investor (PDI) last year.
