For the past 15 years, Eternus Capital has been a leading independent investment bank in India

Indian investors are looking at setting up integrated facilities for steel and mineral processing in South Africa – provided they can obtain captive raw material sources. Of particular interest is the acquisition of mining projects in coal, iron ore, chrome and manganese. Eternus Capital’s principals have been instrumental in successfully advising some of the leading companies in the Resources and Energy sectors in India. They also made a highly significant strategic move when they committed to establishing a full-service investment bank in Canada, largely mirroring their successful Indian platform.

Eternus has collectively participated in many significant transactions in the industry, initiating a number of innovative strategic business combinations. The firm’s insight, network of relationships, execution expertise and understanding of business fundamentals make Eternus Capital an exceptional knowledge source and deal creator for transnational investments.
