We are all makers

Ermak was established to define a new relationship between artistry and investment. Where conventions can be challenged and new opportunities can be explored.

With a curated portfolio supporting a diverse mix of talents, we work to empower our creative partners through an Active Investment approach. Collaborating in the belief that ‘we are all makers’ and that collectively we can achieve more. 

Ambitious to investigate the new, we bring a progressive attitude to projects – creating a space for complimentary expertise and long-standing relationships that ignite imaginations and success.
