Curiosity
is the key
to discovery

Exigent is unique in the world of investment management. Since our founding over a decade ago we’ve marched to the beat of our own drum. We are a boutique investment house armed with a cohesive world-view, access to compelling opportunities and driven by an innate curiosity to discover hidden potential.
Wherever it may lie.

Cut from
a different
cloth

Located in Jerusalem, Israel, we’re free to pursue our own approach to investment, far from the noise and clatter that fills most financial capitals. With no asset class, sector or geographic limitations, we are able to explore situations that offer a return premium due to perception, visibility, or complexity.

Three partners. Three complimentary personalities, skill sets, perspectives and experience. Combined, it is the formula that allows Exigent to thrive.

Elie Brender

Partner

Elie's macro views and command of the global investment landscape have long steered the evolution of our innovative investment strategies. He has twenty years of experience trading and investing in an international setting across liquid and OTC products, structured credit, real estate, and private company investments - having started his career at JP Morgan. Elie enjoys the intellectual pursuit of history and science, tries to play sports or exercise regularly - but isn't always successful - and devotes time to mentoring, and to not-for-profit and educational institutions focused on Israel and the Jewish Future.

Simcha Mann

Partner

Sim's global relationship network and activist approach powers our quest for high-quality investment opportunities. His addition to the firm in 2015 accelerated our evolution from a start-up to an institutional caliber investment house, and added capabilities in medical and energy technology, distressed debt, and Israel as an asset class. At Exigent, Sim has led the largest pre-IPO investment into an Israeli medical technology company. He has twenty years’ experience - a significant portion of which was at York Capital where he managed the largest corporate restructuring in Israel's history. Sim enjoys golf and bowling, but is only good at one of them.

Eric Davis

Partner

Eric has been the steady hand guiding our firm since its founding, adroitly adapting Exigent's platform to harness new opportunities. He has twenty-five years of professional experience in legal, structuring and operations, having started his career at the New York office of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker. While he can't quite play ball like his college days Eric is a recent gold medal winner at the Maccabiah games, and enjoys history and exploring the Land of Israel.
