Silverfern’s Investor Intelligence: The blending of global reach with local market knowledge
Silverfern believes its strongest competitive advantage is the Firm’s extensive networks of relationships, built up over the past 15 years, that provide both private, off-market information flows spanning both markets and industries and access to attractive, non-correlated investment opportunities. Silverfern acts as a primary deal originator by combining these distinctive information flows and resources with the networks of its partners, enabling it to identify significant dislocations between value and price in companies and assets whose source of dislocation or underperformance is either temporary or controllable, and allowing Silverfern to act as a local investor in seeking global private equity, U.S. commercial real estate private debt, and direct real estate investment opportunities. We actively diligence, select and manage our investments to generate superior risk-adjusted investment returns for our investors.
Silverfern’s Global Investor Network
Silverfern’s investor network includes both major institutions 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. Whether an opportunity is being evaluated in Singapore or France, Panama or California, Silverfern has local, on-the-ground resources we can draw on for diligence, market intelligence and expertise. Our network is the largest of its kind in the world, and gives us a strategic advantage over both passive and “non-local” investors.
Silverfern’s demonstrated ability to creatively partner with non-traditional and/or strategic partners is another deep source of highly-differentiated deal flow that more traditional, less flexible, capital providers may struggle to access.
The Silverfern Advisory Board
Silverfern’s operating manager network, the Silverfern Advisory Board, is comprised of more than 50 Fortune 1000 CEOs and senior operating executives – an unparalleled platform of deep operational and local market insight into the companies and assets we are considering as investment opportunities. This breadth of operating experience allows us to diversify our portfolio across industries and asset classes, acting as a globally diversified industry or asset specialist, clearly distinct from generalist firms and investors.
Silver3TG Collaboration with 3650 REIT
In September 2018, Silverfern and 3650 REIT announced their collaboration for bridge and event-driven lending secured by U.S. commercial real estate (“CRE”) to be marketed as the Silver3TG Investment Program, and creating a cohesive team of over thirty-five (35) real estate professionals operating out of five (5) U.S. cities originating, executing and servicing compelling CRE private debt investments. Through this collaboration, Silver3TG is well-positioned to capitalize on this opportunity given the Silver3TG team’s depth and breadth of experience and track record in U.S. commercial real estate debt markets, structured finance, loan origination & servicing, and regulatory interface.
