Who we are

Founded in 2004 and with offices in Johannesburg and London, Westbrooke invests and manages capital in multiple geographies on behalf of its shareholders and investors in private debt, hybrid capital, real estate and private equity / venture capital. We manage approximately R6bn of shareholder and investor capital invested predominantly in SA, the UK and USA.

Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management was established as a multi-asset, multi-strategy manager of alternative investment funds and products structured to preserve and compound our clients’ wealth to cement their future prosperity.

Our team is comprised of experienced entrepreneurs and investment professionals who apply a broad range of experience and skills to deliver investment opportunities which offer a simple investable outcome – predictable, sustainable, risk managed long term returns for investors in an increasingly complex environment.

We have a heritage as a shareholder and operator of assets, investing our own capital to develop and grow our businesses and assets. We believe our operational experience and expertise gives us and our investors a competitive advantage.

We are wholly committed to financial alignment.  We invest materially alongside our clients and partners in all our funds and investments.


Founded in 2012, WAAM is owned by Westbrooke Group shareholders including the Capricorn Capital Group, Capricorn Ventures and management.

Collectively, the shareholders of WAAM have access to a deep well of intellectual and financial capital. We collaborate closely, share know-how and resources, and draw on a broad network of local and international contacts to reach successful outcomes and grow and protect investors’ capital.
