On Thursday 11th July, Chrystal Capital celebrated its 10th anniversary at the company’s annual Summer Party hosted at The Terrace, No. 4 Hamilton Place in Mayfair, London.

Overlooking Hyde Park, the rooftop terrace served as an excellent location for over 300 of Chrystal’s broad investor network who joined in the birthday celebrations.
Keeping all things British, HMS Spirits served up their quintessential G&T along with the 'stonkingly good' English sparkling wine offered by Nyetimber. Internationally renowned DJ Guy Preston - who has performed alongside artists such as Beyonce, Sting and Kanye West - kept the party rocking, while world-class magician Archie Manners had everyone guessing.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019, Chrystal Capital are proud of the entrepreneurial and innovative approach to financing which has seen the corporate finance and investment house proliferate over the past decade.
Since inception, Chrystal have completed over 70 deals and have raised billions of dollars. Where does the company go from here? As James Innes, co-founder and partner of Chrystal Capital detailed in his speech, “It’s exciting...”
We have moved from a pure advisory business to a corporate finance and investment house,
We work with over 400 single family offices,
We invest in our own private equity deals as a lead investor,
We work with top tier VC groups to co-invest with them,
We have our own funds under management – we have had confirmation that a sovereign wealth fund will corner our medical cannabis fund with USD100m,
We continue to grow to bring in investment directors and advisors to support our investee companies and,
We continue to find opportunities that are well suited to our global network of families, UHNWIs, institutional partners and now, sovereign wealth funds.
However, we remember our roots – nothing comes easy; hard work is needed. We remember that we couldn’t have achieved this without the support of many people who we now consider to be close friends and who are here in this room.
We remember that it is a team effort, and without the team, at Chrystal Capital, we would not be successful.”
