From Dunas Capital to Heed Capital

Heed Capital is a fund management firm formerly known as Dunas Capital.

Our tightly knit team of professionals is proud of its proven track record built over decades and across different asset classes.


We are creatures of limitless potential
living in a planet of finite resources.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and even burdened. It can be hard to navigate the options.
Change is all around us. Opportunity too.
So how do we keep moving onward and upward? We look closer.
Care for our subject. Avoid distractions.
Examine relentlessly.
Put in the time. Think for ourselves.
We go against the grain.
And find like minded souls.
Build trust where trust is needed.
And repeat as many times as necessary. Onwards and upwards.
Heed. Attention is capital.




Heed is owned by a group of independent partners. That matters when it comes to decision making and acting in the best interest of those that seek our help.


We believe attention is an essential resource and look closely at wherever opportunities may arise. We identify moving pieces in a volatile environment. And we act upon it. Diversifying our areas of expertise in asset management over the years is a direct consequence of looking for the best solutions for our clients.

Critical thinking

We question widely-held beliefs and the status quo to achieve better outcomes for our clients. That is the only way forward for financial product development.

Relationship Building

Businesses are ultimately people. The way we build relationships over long periods of time will either affirm our beliefs or shatter them. We make sure to never forget that when dealing with our clients.


What you see is what you get. We are licensed, regulated and committed to transparency.
