Welcome to The Athena Capital Limited where ideas create value


We offer the full suite of corporate finance and advisory service. Our primary focus remains in dealing with Indian and European corporates. We have more recently been looking at a number of proposals from Africa.


India is a growth story that will extend beyond the immediate horizon of 2-3 years which most market participants tend to focus on. There is an increased momentum in the economy drawing in several parts of the country and propelling it ahead, spreading seeds of growth of varying potential.

These seeds need the irrigation of capital. Most Investment Bankers are willing to hose in capital for the larger companies. However, it is the smaller organisations with untapped potential that are left fighting for capital.

And it is just these small companies with great potential that draw our attention. We advise and support small and medium size organisations from India and other Asian countries in mobilizing capital from investors in the global market. We believe that in the developing economies of Asia there are opportunities abound in each and every sector. We ignore sectoral or any other preferences because the possibilities are limitless. We are available to assist quality owner – manager driven businesses, to tap their potential and enable them to scale new heights.


A number of UK and European companies have been looking at Asia particularly India for cross border deals. We have been working on various proposals and advising our clients on structuring of the transaction, arranging financing and coordinating with various specialist tax and legal advisors.

We are quite active on arranging finance for a number of UK businesses in the form of acquisition finance, working capital finance, development finance for real estate ventures or the plain vanilla property finance.


Over the recent years we have guided companies in the Indian sub-continent and have mobilized over USD 300 million. We have raised capital via Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (FCCBs) as well as Global Depository Receipts (GDRs). The market capitalisation of these companies range between USD 50 million to USD 2 billion and the sectors as diverse as Information Technology, Textiles, Engineering and Real Estate.
