Secondary Direct Investments in Venture Capital and Private Equity

HomeInvestment StrategyWhy Choose UsTeamContact Us

We offer comprehensive solutions to current owners of portfolio investments. We can provide either liquidity through an outright acquisition or management and follow-on funding through a “synthetic” sale. The outright sale immediately frees a seller to redirect financial and management resources. If there is a preference to retain residual ownership, reduce rather than eliminate the amount of required management and financial resources, or avoid a formal sale process, a synthetic sale may be more desirable.

We know the issues and how to address them. During the initial evaluation phase, our experience enables us to quickly understand the fundamental value drivers. Customized solutions are proposed in a time efficient and confidential manner. Our close working relationship with leading institutional investors significantly increases the certainty of successfully closing a transaction.

We are active investment managers. Whenever appropriate, we take board seats and get involved as lead investors in financing rounds, restructurings, and liquidity strategies. We’ve also learned to be patient. For management teams and shareholders, we are a new investor with a longer time horizon, available capital, and relevant experience to assist in realizing an individual company’s full potential.
