Why we are different
We are different to most private equity investors because we:
- Take minority equity stakes
- Do not take controlling positions
- Invest with a preferred instrument which means management own more of the equity
We are different to most traditional mezzanine lenders because we:
- Do not invest alongside private equity sponsors
- Do not take a preferred return through redemption premia or prepayment penalties
- Are not restricted by 'market metrics' so we can provide tailor made financial solutions meeting the exact requirements of each business
We structure transactions to create alignment with management shareholders.
Most of our return comes from growth in the equity value of the businesses we invest in.
