Silverfern’s unique approach to global direct co-control investment focuses on generating superior returns for our investors, while seeking to minimize capital risk
Silverfern’s core investment philosophy is centered on long term capital growth with a focus on capital preservation. To consistently grow capital through investment, capital must first be preserved.
Silverfern invests in direct co-control private equity only. Unlike a co-investment fund, which draws on its fund investments as an LP to source deal flow, Silverfern originates its own deals independent of any LP relationships, utilizing the deep origination and diligence resources more typically found in a strategic investor.
Silverfern has a highly differentiated, global, private equity co-control lead investment strategy. We believe that the addition of active – not passive – global direct investment is what generates alpha in an investment portfolio.
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. We employ an active diversification strategy, seeking to mitigate systemic risk through geographic diversification and to manage market risk through industry diversification.
