Wafra Capital Partners Rebrands as InterVest Capital Partners

InterVest Capital Partners, formerly known as Wafra Capital Partners, a leading investment manager in structured finance verticals and a pioneer of Sharia-compliant investment products, announced a major rebrand.

InterVest Capital Partners, previously the Structured Finance and Business Development Divisions of Wafra, Inc. ("WAFRA"), commenced operations on January 1, 2012, as a separate operating entity and U.S. registered investment adviser under the name Wafra Capital Partners.

The rebrand brings forth a differentiated identity, distinct from its former affiliate (Wafra Inc.), InterVest Capital Partners said in a press release.

Our new brand represents an opportunity to showcase InterVest Capital Partners' unique business model in terms of how we invest personal capital into the firm and into our portfolio companies," said Bob Toan, Executive Chairman of InterVest Capital Partners. "We always want to maximise alignment for all of our stakeholders."

"The new brand is a major milestone in our firm's journey, embodying our core values as an organization," added Michael Gontar, CEO of InterVest Capital Partners. "InterVest Capital Partners is a committed partner in every sense of the word. Our investors always come first, which is clearly demonstrated by our 20+ year track record."

InterVest Capital Partners will continue to serve its Leasing and Finance Program, having established over 120 vehicles with committed capital exceeding USD14 billion since 1999.
