We support independent (or fundless) sponsors raising debt and equity to support new acquisitions and direct investments.
The independent sponsor model is a novelty concept and is gaining traction among European investors who seek a more flexible, targeted, and cost-efficient way to build a private equity portfolio.
Independent sponsors are experienced industry executives or private equity managers who acquire companies without a dedicated fund to invest from.
Many talented executives and professionals have gravitated towards this model. It represents an opportunity to apply their skill sets with a higher degree of autonomy than working as employees.
We've developed a focused effort tailored to the unique needs of independent or fundless sponsors.
Embracing the independent sponsor model, we raise debt and equity for acquisitions on a deal-by-deal basis while aiming to accelerate the financing process and protect sponsor economics and fees.
We strive to deliver competitive, flexible capital solutions with the right capital partners to support both the new acquisition and growth of the business.
