About Us

Tattarang is one of Australia’s largest private investment groups with a portfolio that spans across agri-food, energy, resources, property and lifestyle. The group is made up of six business divisions: Fiveight, Harvest Road, SFM Marine, Squadron Energy, Wyloo Metals and Z1Z. We believe in investing for growth and pursue opportunities in both the listed and unlisted space with a long-term investment horizon.

Squadron Energy is an Australian resources company focused on projects in natural resources and renewable energy. We believe Australia needs to transition to renewable energy to safeguard a sustainable future so we invest in initiatives, research, technologies and projects that will support and accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy.

  • Ensuring accurate and timely financial reports and forecasts for the whole organisation so as to provide a clear insight into its financial condition.
  • Advising on the financial implications of management decisions and establishing the financial soundness of proposed acquisitions and divestment of assets or businesses.
  • Advising on appropriate capital structures for projects and investments.
  • Provide financial oversight to teams responsible for significant capital expenditure on energy infrastructure projects.
  • Providing analysis to support internal audit and risk management.
  • Ensuring that the profits of the organisation are protected through the establishment of effective financial controls, implementing and maintaining appropriate management accounting and reporting systems, budgetary controls and expenditure procedures.
  • Implementing policies to ensure the security of funds and assets, capital expenditure, guiding the lodgement of tax and other returns to comply with all statutory requirements, and administering insurance cover and claims.
