About Aspen Capital Fund

Our core values of Honesty, Citizenship, Knowledge, Spirituality, and Achievement help build a unique and scarce deal flow of the best prepared investment opportunities on a global scale.

The investment universe is ever more complex and competitive. Investments must be sourced globally, from a variety of channels. Connectivity, wisdom and intelligence are essential, as are vigilance and a healthy dose of skepticism. Rigorous analysis supports everything we do, all built around our proprietary Metrica methodology.

We are able to bring clients “early look” opportunities not available elsewhere. Using our full resources and expertise, we carefully construct bespoke portfolios that correspond to our clients’ singular needs.

Focus on Emerging Wealth

We have also built an expertise in guiding the next generation of high-level wage earners, as they embark on their own journey of discovering how they wish to impact the world in which they live and work.

A Hispanic focus.

Aspen Capital Fund provides capital raise resources to help connect Hispanic startups and existing Hispanic businesses with investors.

We are uniquely positioned to lead the development of the nascent capital raise and investor relations strategy niche for Hispanic-owned businesses.  Aspen Capital Fund provides unmatched levels of support for fundamentally strong, undervalued, small business and startups that lack the necessary resources for a successful capital raise.  Aspen Capital Fund is also uniquely qualified to introduce its best deal flow candidates to direct investors (angels, early stage investors, venture capitalists, family offices).  Aspen Capital Fund has established expertise and subject matter expertise on Hispanic Minority- Owned Ventures, Structures and (Hispanic Direct Investing) Investment Opportunities.
