A Search Fund is...

A financial vehicle and an entrepreneurial path undertaken by one or two individuals (the “Searchers”) who form an investment vehicle with a small group of aligned investors, some of whom become mentors, in order to search for, acquire, and lead a privately held company for the medium to long term.

Introduced to one another by a mutual colleague in 2008, Lui and Ak began ‘trading notes’ on their combined experiences of helping clients with growth, mergers, acquisitions, MBOs and other forms of business transitions.

This led them to discover – and get passionate about – the Search Fund concept and investment asset class.  In 2018 they established Second Squared to officially introduce Search to the Australian market and accelerate the opportunity for growing a thriving Search community here.

The unexpected speed with which the community has grown has led them to establish WayFinder Capital in 2021 with Nima Sedaghat,  Australia’s leading practicing corporate lawyer and expert on Search Funds.
