Artesian is an alternative investment management company. We are based in Sydney, Australia, with offices in: Melbourne, London, New York, Shanghai and Singapore. Our global team is committed to helping investors access and benefit from alternative asset investing.

Alternative asset classes have historically been difficult for individual investors to access, understand and participate in. At Artesian, we want to change all of that.

We offer sophisticated investors in Australia the ability to invest in Australian corporate bonds as well as alternative asset classes including early-stage ventures (startups).

Our flagship fund, the Artesian Australian VC Fund (AFOF), provides investors with tax-free exposure to 500-1000 high growth-potential startups sourced from Australia’s key hubs of startup activity, including: universities, incubators, accelerators and angel groups.

Some funds are also open to eligible foreign investors under Australia’s Significant Investor Visa programme. We offer a SIV-compliant bond fund and an early-stage venture capital fund.
