ARQCapital was established in 2014 by its founders, Edmund Solilapsi and Abigail Tan. Following their experience in investment banking, financial markets, and financial advisory, the partners sought ways to address the needs of challenged SMEs in the Philippines.
ARQCapital sought to create solutions, either in the form of capital or advisory services, to support the requirements of its target clients - Philippine entrepreneurs and SMEs.
With the help of their experience in regional private equity, the partners further developed ARQCapital's investment thesis and in 2016 launched ARQCapital Two - an SME growth capital provider. Today ARQCapital Two provides balance sheet to our partners either in the form of structured credit or mezzanine finance. ARQCapital also continues to provide financial advisory services depending on the requirements of its clients.
