About Us

Solis Capital is a trusted source of advice to boutique fund managers, asset managers and fast growing, enterpreneurial businesses

Solis Capital was created in 2017 by Christopher Down, founder of Hearthstone Investments, a residential fund manager which launched the UK's first residential PAIF and now manages over £400m AUM.

Our small team provides consultancy services to clients in the housing and green energy sectors, whether they are existing fund managers looking to diversify into a new asset class or asset owners intending to raise external capital. We also develop our own funds to fill specific institutional investor needs.

We also have an extensive track record in supporting property sector businesses which are either in distress or undergoing periods of significant change.

Some of the projects we have created or advised on include:

  • A social impact fund to create the UK's first accessible housing portfolio for long-term rent by tenants. Despite over 1 million wheelchair users living in the UK, there is virtually no provision of suitable homes to rent outside of social housing. (

  • Change management consultancy surrounding the transfer of accounting and administration services of a listed property REIT under significant time pressure.

  • Contributing to the strategic planning of a proptech firm seeking to change the way buy-to-let landlords buy and sell property investments

  • Designing a fund offering for a major UK property management business who were seeking an opportunity to channel buy-to-let clients into a fund-based alternative.

  • A long-term, carbon-negative forestry fund aimed at supporting sustainable UK-based forestry and providing carbon offset opportunities.

Solis Capital (Holdings) Limited and its subsidiaries are not required to be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and do not offer investment advice directly to clients or perform regulated investment activities. We recommend and work with partners who provide these specific functions to our clients.
