ABOUT TRANSACTION CAPITAL

At Transaction Capital, we are catalysts of unconventional potential. We invest in and operate high-potential businesses in markets with historically low levels of client service and trust. This gives us untapped opportunities for disruption, innovation, and high returns.

Our businesses apply their experience, specialised expertise, technology, and data advantages to provide competitive and innovative solutions in order to deliver outstanding commercial benefits to clients and to drive the positive and progressive transformation of their industries. This approach enables the group to consistently generate strong financial rewards for our stakeholders.
