Networks Made To Succeed – Market Update (Q2 2023)

Antum’s philosophy – “always be focused and expertly niche” –  has grown stronger in its conviction, as the business models which it sought to disrupt, themselves evolved and caught-up over the years.

We made it through a surreal 2020/21, were still living with global limitations and curtailments of certain freedoms throughout 2022, suffering loss and hardship all over, yet we have seen incredible technological advances that have turned the tide and 2023 has firmly been preoccupied with financial issues brought upon by the response of global central banks to massive inflationary pressures.

Markets have suddenly taken a back seat to renewed contagion fears – a revisit to 2008-2009. Have we learnt nothing? The jury remains ready to return to court as we currently strive to avert a massive collapse, seemingly instead dealing with one at a time in a concerted effort, many would say this response has been unfair and lopsided – they would be right in our opinion. Fact remains, issues from 2008 were never fully solved and a simple return to c.5% interest rates has brought the tide out leaving behind the mess that many had anticipated was hiding beneath the surface. In these circumstances, quality will continue to provide outsized returns and attractive choices when all fundamentals are considered.

New Environment – Old Rule: quality shines through

When Hani first launched Antum in 2012, specifically to break-away from the traditional investment banking models he had worked within, the traditional “in big-firms-we-trust” sanctified business approach, was still very difficult to manoeuvre away from.

Since then, rapid advances in technology, favourable market shifts, new globalised attitudes and a faster-pace of dealing across cultures, has ensured Antum’s approach to dealing direct and in closed, trusted circles, has flourished.

At Antum we are proud of the friendships we form and maintain through both good times and bad.

In these truly unique and difficult market circumstances, this suddenly shifted world we now find ourselves navigating will bring about even more challenges – as always. Antum is ready and well-positioned to profit from these rarefied generational shifts.

From immense leaps in Healthtech to Fintech and an invigorated view of Private Credit, enforced attitude shifts have brought about seismic business model changes in weeks rather than years, Antum and its partners are positioned to reap the rewards 

We look forward to the future business successes we and our partners will enjoy. 

For now and most importantly, we wish everyone continued health and safety. We look forward to working together with you all. See you soon.
