ARQCapital was established in 2014 by its founders, Edmund Solilapsi and Abigail Tan. Following their experience in investment banking, financial markets, and financial advisory in the Philippines and in the region, the partners sought ways to address the needs of promising but underserved Philippine SMEs.

In 2016, ARQCapital launched ARQCapital Two, a mezzanine fund that provides balance sheet to our SME partners either in the form of structured credit or mezzanine debt.

We invest in the growth of our SME clients, partnering and assisting them in their individual journeys, providing sound commercial and financial advise and in the helping sponsors grow their company and achieve their business goals and objectives.


Our vision is to be the preferred financial partner of promising entrepreneurs and SMEs in the Philippines. We would like to be recognized as premiere SME investor focused on supporting growth capital requirements of our clients.

Our actions are always driven by whether it will drive both ARQCapital and our partners forward in the right way. We put an emphasis on trust and integrity.
We structure optimal short-term or long-term growth funding based on the needs of our partners
We foster long-term partnerships between capital providers and entrepreneurs. Our key thrust is to provide solutions beyond funding for a holistic perspective to deliver business growth.
Good enough is never enough. We continually look for ways to improve and do things better.
We're driven to win for both investors and partners. We measure our performance not only by our success, but by how we achieve it and the impact it creates.
