Rodric David is a businessman who understand entrepreneurship on an international level. He is the Executive Chairman of a company, United Capital Partners, but has prior to this held a number of different leadership positions over the years for different companies. For a time, Rodric David served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Abu Dhabi-based Emergent Capital Limited. This private equity firm, based out of the United Arab Emirates, was founded in 2008. Emergent Capital Limited was founded in order to raise funds in the midst of the financial crisis. This allowed the company to make speculative investments at a time when the economy was down, which provides ample opportunity for investors who see the potential. Emergent Capital Limited saw an opportunity to invest in cleantech and emerging technologies and they leaped at the chance.
Rodric David’s Emergent Capital Limited in January of 2009 purchased an AWT (Alternative Waste Treatment) business called Global Renewables Limited. This company, based out of Sydney, Australia, was a major purchase. Global Renewables Limited was acquired by Emergent Capital Limited from GUD Holdings Limited, which is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). Rodric David in February of 2009 was entrusted with being Chairman of Global Renewables Limited. He took over at the helm of that company and would oversee the negotiation with WSN Environmental Solution, a New South Wales government-owned corporation, concerning their contract. These negotiations were important and well handled.
It was in 2011 that Rodric David was able to mete out the sale of Emergent Capital Limited’s stake in Global Renewables Limited. Rodric David was soon able to resign as Chairman of Global Renewables Limited, since Ironbridge Capital bought there interest in the venture. The sale of Global Renewables Limited proved to be a positive—as the original investment that Emergent Capital Limited made was increased by a great deal. It made possible an investor return that amounted to more than twenty-seven times the initial investment. This was a deal that made everyone happy.
