Silverfern is amongst the few truly global middle-market, multi-asset class, investment management firms in the world today
Silverfern’s Global Investor Network
Silverfern’s investor network includes both institutional investors and more than 65 of the world’s largest and most sophisticated multi-billion-dollar single family offices, and spans 23 countries around the globe. By tapping into this network, we have local, on-the-ground resources on which we can draw for diligence, market intelligence and expertise. This network is the largest of its kind in the world, and gives us a strategic advantage over both passive and “non-local” investors.
Our global investor network is also an important source of non-traditional, private, and “off-market” deal flow. As sophisticated investors themselves, our family office limited partners and other, non-traditional, investment partners often seek to partner with Silverfern on deals they are pursuing, either to leverage our deep diligence experience, or to access our network of global investors themselves.
Silverfern’s global network allows us to execute a geographically diverse global investment strategy. We are a local investor in every investment we make globally, and we leverage our resources to ensure that while mitigating systemic risk we do not simply substitute market risk in its place. Our global orientation allows us to leverage the industry expertise of our investment partners and to capitalize on differences in industry cycles across geographic regions, helping us deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors.
By always partnering with experienced investors we know and trust well, Silverfern is always a local investor in everything we do globally.
Silverfern’s Global Operating Network
Silverfern’s global operating network – The Silverfern Advisory Board – is comprised of more than 50 Fortune 1000 (or similar) CEOs and senior operating executives – a platform of deep operational and local industry insight into the companies we are considering as investment opportunities. This breadth of operating experience allows us to diversify our portfolio across industries and around the world, acting as a globally diversified industry specialist, clearly distinct from generalist firms and investors.
Global Partnership with the Citi Private Bank
Silverfern has a global partnership with Citibank to provide non-traditional, direct equity investment opportunities to the Citi Private Bank’s largest and most sophisticated UHNW clients worldwide, giving us direct access to the global in-market reach of one of the world’s largest banks.

With 13 senior partners investing out of Silverfern offices in New York, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Sydney, we combine solid investing experience with deep in-person local market knowledge, allowing us to quickly identify and focus on only the most compelling investment opportunities in each of our focus geographies.
