NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Board of Scepter Partners has announced the allocation of $14 billion of discretionary assets by its core stakeholders to support the future activities of Scepter Partners. The board represents the assets of a number of Gulf and Asian ruling families and ultra-high-net-worth investors, who have combined their resources to form a standing syndicate of sovereign investors. Scepter was established this year as a direct investment and merchant banking specialist for sovereign wealth and large cap family offices.
HH Prince Abdul Ali, Chairman of the Board and a scion of the ruling family of Brunei, commented, “The core investors of Scepter are delighted to support the global merchant banking activities of the group. We are committed to making a meaningful change in the way that large cap transactions are executed. We do this in a format that unifies certain families and sovereign investors who may have been competitors for assets in the past, into a single platform where investments are deployed under world class governance.” Scepter’s core capital will be used to underwrite and anchor transactions with direct investments from syndicate members.
Scepter is a standing syndicate of ruling families, ultra-high-net-worth industrialists and sovereign wealth funds. Headquartered in Bermuda with offices in New York and representative offices in London and Beijing, Scepter was founded by financier Rayo Withanage to acquire large cap assets with a focus in natural resources, infrastructure, real estate and media and telecommunications. Scepter’s global merchant banking activities are led by banking veteran Anthony J. Steains and his former Blackstone Advisory Partners Asia team. As a principal investor, Scepter is supported by the discretionary assets of its core stakeholders and a syndicate of investors who have combined resources to invest in off-market large cap transactions globally.
