Direct Deal Capabilities

Owning equity in private companies can be exceptionally rewarding

We have helped several client families participate in direct minority ownership of rapidly growing private operating companies. Similar to real estate, private operating companies can serve as superior wealth generators because of the compounding of their enterprise value with meaningful tax benefits. Such undertakings require significant due diligence and a combination of experience, intuition, and financial knowledge.

We have helped source, analyze, and negotiate private deals directly, often based on the interests of a client family in a particular industry niche where they have expertise, such as health beverages or digital retailers. We also have close relationships with many of the preeminent private equity firms that allow us to provide unique access for our clients. In some cases, we co-invest directly with firms in emerging companies that they have identified and provide on-going leadership support.
