About Us

A growth-oriented investment team with a proven record.


We identify opportunities that align with our goal of consciously investing for the future while delivering strong returns.

Our History

Torrent Capital took its current form as an investment issuer in early 2017. At that time, Wade Dawe was appointed CEO and the management and investment teams were established shortly thereafter.

A Promising Start

Starting with less than $6M in Net Assets, Torrent invested in a diversified portfolio of small and micro cap companies. Without raising additional capital, Torrent’s Net Asset Value (NAV) grew from under $6M on June 30, 2017 to approximately $25M as of March 31, 2022, representing a cumulative return of 302%.

Our Focus

Applying a flexible investment strategy, we target companies with the potential for 5-10X returns, but we may also capitalize on short term price movements.

Primary areas of investment


Clean Technology

We look for companies with the potential to have a positive impact and be part of the solution to the climate crisis.


Digital Technology
and Media

We interested in companies with a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model and re-occurring revenue or other scalable technologies.


Life Sciences

Canada is a leader in life sciences and healthcare innovation with a robust network of academic and research facilities. We look for life sciences companies with proprietary technologies that are solving unique problems.

How we invest


We invest on Canadian small cap equities that are due to experience accelerated growth or are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value.


Torrent Capital created a portfolio of Canadian equities in the clean technology sector that is actively managed. Torrent selects early stage companies that will lead the macro shift to sustainable practices and are supported by sound business plans and economic assumptions.
