What we're thinking about

Land-based aquaculture, particularly through Recirculating Aquaculture Systems, has become the "it" investment in the seafood space. Its rise hasn't exactly been meteoric, but a confluence of factors has finally convinced the greater institutional investor base to get off the sidelines and start taking the area seriously.

To say that new money has been flooding into land-based aquaculture recently would be an understatement. In a 2019 study on land-based initiatives, Rabobank estimated that new production reared from Recirculating Aquaculture Systems would add over 700,000 metric tonnes per year. Most of this investment is for Atlantic salmon.

Where we started

Prior to Peritus, the Founders launched a small business lender using proprietary software to source lending opportunities, later exiting its loan portfolio at a profit and producing attractive returns for investors. This was followed by an investment in Lighthouse Finance, an aquaculture focused asset finance firm headquartered in Norway. The Founders were instrumental in rebranding the business, expanding it into North America, Europe, and Asia, significantly growing its portfolio, and resulting in a 8x return to the Founders in less than three years.

While Peritus expands its investment mandate to other sectors and financial instruments, it continues to guide and support the development of Lighthouse.

The Founders have held key executive roles and contributed to the transformation of a venture capital-backed start-up to a billion-dollar business. The business continues to be a critical provider of business intelligence and research to a broad audience of hedge funds, financial advisors, and institutional investors.
