Private Equity:

We strategically invest into leading middle market companies globally, in partnership with world class investment partners and management


Silverfern makes direct, co-control and minority investments in middle market private equity investment opportunities with non-traditional investors, leading private equity firms and sophisticated family offices in buyouts, build-ups, acquisitions, growth equity and recapitalizations worldwide.

While typically a primary deal originator, Silverfern does not lead the investments that it sources.  Instead, we employ an active diversification strategy to generate superior risk-adjusted returns, seeking to mitigate systemic risk through geographic diversification and to manage market risk through industry diversification, in partnership with carefully selected, industry-expert, investment partners.

We focus on investing substantial capital into leading middle-market companies worldwide, with our typical Private Equity direct investment size being US$25 million to US$150 million per deal.

Strength through Partnership

Silverfern seeks to ensure that its focus on systemic risk mitigation does not simply substitute local/market risk in its place, through our strategy to partner with non-traditional, local, industry-expert investment partners on each of our investments.

Silverfern’s non-traditional, family office, and financial sponsor investment partners have included some of the most sophisticated investors in the world; please see Our Companies.
