Silverfern’s unique approach to global direct co-control investment focuses on generating superior returns for our investors, while seeking to minimize capital risk
Silverfern’s core investment philosophy is centered on long term capital growth with a focus on capital preservation. To consistently grow capital through investment, capital must first be preserved.
Silverfern invests in direct co-control investments only. Unlike a co-investment fund, which draws on its fund investments as an LP to source deal flow, Silverfern originates its own deals independent of any LP relationships, utilizing the deep origination and diligence resources more typically found in a strategic investor.
Silverfern has a highly differentiated, global, direct co-control investment strategy. We believe that the addition of active – not passive – global direct investment is what generates alpha in an investment portfolio.
Silverfern makes direct co-control middle market equity and private equity credit investments in partnership with sophisticated family offices, non-traditional investment partners, and leading private equity firms in buyouts, build-ups, acquisitions, growth equity and recapitalizations worldwide. We employ an active diversification strategy, seeking to mitigate systemic risk through geographic diversification and to manage market risk through industry diversification.
Silverfern makes direct equity and real estate credit investments in partnership with leading real estate operating partners, sophisticated family offices, institutional real estate owners and leading private equity firms, in the acquisition and recapitalization of real estate assets and companies around the world. Our focus is on value-added and opportunistic real estate investments throughout the capital structure.
Silverfern makes direct private debt investments up and down the capital structure of its target companies and real estate above equity. Silverfern seeks to capitalize on the information flows its global private equity and real estate origination networks (Investor Network: 65+ investors in twenty-three (23) countries; the SAB: over fifty (50) Fortune-1000 CEOs) provide to better understand the companies and assets it is considering investing into and to identify situations where it believes the potential may exist to achieve superior returns on a risk-adjusted basis through investing in private debt rather than through investing in equity.
