The Vuna Group (Vuna) is a multidisciplinary entrepreneurial group whose strategy is that of corporate structuring, equity acquisition and project development within those industries in which it is active. Geographically, Vuna is principally focussed on developing projects within under-developed regions of Asia, Southern Africa and the Western Indian Ocean.
The Vuna Group is managed by a highly experienced team of global professionals with extensive and specific expertise in resource projects, finance, technology and real estate developments. The Company currently has offices in the United Kingdom, Australia, Madagascar and Mauritius.
Vuna applies its industry specific core competencies to identify early stage opportunities, ideally with previous
historical workings demonstrating high growth potential.
We apply a private equity/ venture capital approach to corporate finance through seed funding, structuring and driving capital raisings for fledging assets through providing initial phase funding for due-diligence, acquisition/farm in and project establishment. The Company remains intrinsically involved in our projects at either board or management level throughout the various development stages.
To date, Vuna founded projects have raised over USD$400million in capital investment, which has propelled assets to reach their targets, and for Vuna and their investor network to enjoy high returns on investment.
- Discovery and sale of MCM Coal project to PTT Straits (> 300 Mt of coal)

- Discovery and funding of Uranium, Gold, Platinum, Hydroelectric and Diamond exploration projects
- Shareholding position in Walcom Biochemicals Ltd, Shanghai, China

Vuna Capital Partners Ltd is essentially an "incubator” for fledging natural resource assets – management, development and early financing with a view to developing stand alone
companies in which we retain a substantial shareholding, with the remaining equity sold to strategic partners or floated on internationally recognised exchanges.
Typical Project Methodology
Identification of Potential Project. Internal and external due-diligence and appraisal processes and market/reconnaisance analysis in order to ascertain project viability. Provision of initial seed capital for the structuring and formation of the operating entity that will own and develop the secured assets. Raising of asset development capital through equity release to institutions and stock markets or direct trade sales to mining operators. This could also be the exit strategy depending on the investment objective for a specific project.
