Private Equity:

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

Investment Strategy

Silverfern makes direct, co-control middle market private equity 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.

While typically a primary deal originator, Silverfern does not sole-lead the private equity 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 local, industry-expert investment partners on each of our investments.

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