About Three Zero Three Capital Partners

Three Zero Three Capital (“303”) began operating as a principal investor in 2004. Prior to its formation, the founding partners were engaged in proprietary trading, applying a variety of absolute return strategies in equities, futures, and futures options. In addition to acting as a principal investor the Company provides M&A advisory, private equity, capital introduction services, fixed income underwriting & trading, hedge fund incubation & formation, outsourced middle office support and CFO services.

We believe our model creates a real alignment of interests and value creation between investors and business operators. Our experienced team allows us to provide strategic value across multiple business sectors, such as trading, asset management, financial services, manufacturing and sports & entertainment.
