Private Debt:

Silverfern seeks to capitalize on the private, off-market information flows coming from its global origination networks to capture superior risk-adjusted returns through investing in private debt rather than in equity


Silverfern makes direct middle market global private debt (private equity or real estate) investments up and down the capital structure of its target companies and real estate assets above equity. Silverfern seeks to capitalize on the information flows its global private equity and real estate origination networks (Silverfern Global Investor Network: 65+ investors in twenty-three (23) countries; the Silverfern Advisory Board: 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.

Our Private Debt strategy seeks to provide our investors with both a current cash-pay income component above typical first lien market returns in each geography in which we invest, together with an appropriately balanced risk-adjusted all-in investment return.

Our typical investment size in Private Debt is US$10 million to US$50 million per credit.

Strength through Partnership

Consistent with Silverfern’s strategy as a global direct middle market investor, we seek to ensure that our focus on systemic risk mitigation does not simply substitute local/market risk in its place, through our strategy to have local, industry-expert investment partners, managers and operating executives on whose knowledge we can draw in each of our investments.
