Track Record

Prior to establishing Adexum, our founding Directors John Murphy and Greg Robertson managed investment funds in growth oriented companies for a period of over 12 years. In that period three successive wholesale private equity funds were raised with commitments from wholesale investors totalling in excess of $500 million. These funds made over 23 principal investments with the investee companies making in excess of 60 separate acquisitions.

Two of these investments were recognised as the “Expansion Investment of the Year” by the Australian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (AVCAL) – Fone Zone in 2006 and Perkins Shipping in 2009.
