Her­itage Cap­i­tal In­vest­ment

HCI was founded in 2013 to bring in­ter­na­tional stan­dards and ca­pa­bil­i­ties with a lo­cal con­text to Myan­mar’s RE mar­ket. HCI’S strength comes from our four com­pli­men­tary busi­ness lines: Leas­ing, De­vel­op­ment, Ad­vi­sory, and Fi­nance.

With Myan­mar in­creas­ingly en­gag­ing with the in­ter­na­tional busi­ness com­mu­nity, HCI prides it­self on sit­ting at the in­ter­sec­tion of lo­cal and global stan­dards. We have leased over 250,000 sqft of space for our clients to date, are lead de­vel­oper on five sep­a­rate projects across Myan­mar, have raised mil­lions in cap­i­tal and have ad­vised sev­eral multi­na­tion­als look­ing to en­ter mar­ket.

HCI’S edge is its struc­ture. Be­ing in­volved in both leas­ing and de­vel­op­ment al­lows us to bet­ter ad­dress the needs of both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional clients. HCI’S large land­bank, strong do­mes­tic con­nec­tions and track record of suc­cess­fully clos­ing deals be­tween lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional par­ties also means we are uniquely placed to ad­vise multi­na­tion­als seek­ing to en­ter Myan­mar’s com­pli­cated real es­tate mar­ket. HCI is also a trusted name amongst lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional banks and in­vestors, which, mar­ried with our deep mar­ket knowl­edge, puts us in prime position to help de­vel­op­ers raise financing for their Myan­mar projects.

AS­SO­CI­ATED COM­PANY MEM­BER Na­tel En­ergy Inc.

Based out of Alameda, California and founded in 2005 by MIT alumni, Na­tel En­ergy is the patent holder and pro­ducer of the hy­dro­engine , a new hy­dropower tur

® bine that en­ables the cost- ef­fec­tive pro­duc­tion of dis­trib­uted, base- load en­ergy from low- head hy­dropower re­sources.

Na­tel’s hy­dro­engine ef­fi­ciently cap­tures ki­netic en­ergy from large vol­umes of wa­ter with no risk of cav­i­ta­tion, en­abling the more cost ef­fec­tive gen­er­a­tion of power from non- pow­ered dams, ir­ri­ga­tion canals and run- of- river in­stal­la­tions. Na­tel de­ploys its tur­bines us­ing a new ap­proach to hy­dropower de­vel­op­ment called Ecos­marthy­dro ™ . Whereas con­ven­tional hy­dropower is char­ac­ter­ized by a cen­tral­ized ap­proach to project plan­ning and large en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­prints, Ecos­marthy­dro in­volves the water­shed- level de­vel­op­ment of cas­cades of mul­ti­ple, strate­gi­cally cited low- head hy­dropower projects that are op­er­ated in an in­te­grated man­ner us­ing Na­tel’s pro­pri­etary wa­ter­she­dos an­a­lyt­ics and op­er­a­tions plat­form.
