About Us

The Start

Summit Capital commenced business in 2013 with its founding shareholders and directors; John Mallon and Josh Parbhu.  


Josh returned from a long period overseas to team up with his old friend John to create Summit Capital. The intention was to establish a long term multi-generational finance and investment business that would stand the test of time and utilise the skills and expertise of its principals.


The retreat of many capital and finance providers from the NZ finance sector post-GFC created a market opportunity that Summit Capital has responded to.   


We continue to grow and are committed to supporting New Zealand businesses, property investors and developers with their finance and capital needs.
