Private Equity

Private equity funds invest in private companies, growing them and selling them years later, generating better returns for investors than they can reliably get from public market investments.

1
Modernize Your Portfolio 1

Your portfolio is likely vastly underexposed to alternative investments such as Private Equity.  Professional investors allocate ~50% of their assets to alternatives yet the average individual only has ~5% exposure.

Strong Risk Adjusted Returns 2

Within the alternatives space, private equity represents the most attractive global asset class with consistent risk-adjusted returns.  Private Equity outperforms the public markets, with the top performing private equity funds vastly outperforming public equities.

3
Diversification 3

Six stocks now account for 30% of the S&P 500’s returns. Investing exclusively in public markets creates a lot of concentration in your portfolio. Given the vast majority of US companies are privately held, alternative investments allow investors to hedge their risk against market downturns by reducing correlation and truly diversifying their portfolio.

How Private Equity Firms Work

Private equity firms are managing record levels of capital from investors, using this strategy

Buy It

Private equity firms acquire stakes in companies that they see potential in. These acquired companies are called portfolio companies.

Fix It

Private equity firms work with their portfolio companies to increase revenue and reduce costs. This makes the portfolio companies more valuable.

Sell It

Private equity firms sell their stakes in portfolio companies at a higher price than the price they bought the stakes for.

Why Private Equity

A high-performing asset class
now open to you

A high-performing asset class now
open to you

01

Higher Returns

Today, many savvy investors put their money into index funds that track the S&P 500, as it is known for its steady returns. Private Equity averages over 25% internal rate of return, historically outperforming the growth rate of the S&P 500, making it an even more attractive investment opportunity.

02

Professionally Managed

Most investors have other full-time jobs, preventing them from being able to constantly look after their investments.
Professionally managed funds take that hassle away, as your money is being invested by someone whose sole responsibility is to look for the best places to put your money.

03

Diversification

Events affecting the economy can impact specific sectors or public markets at-large.
By placing money in alternative asset funds, investors can hedge their risk against downturns in investment themes or public markets.

Complimentary Feeder Funds for GPs

We create feeder funds, free of charge to General Partners, that reduce the headache of aggregating smaller ticket sizes from hard to reach pools of capital such as wealth management channels, friends & family and strategic operating partners.

About Us

A combination of private equity and technology backgrounds

When Rohan worked at Blackstone, he noticed that private equity and alternative asset funds were always in high demand, but the only customers were large institutions or ultra high-net-worth individuals.

Rohan wanted to drastically expand access to these investment opportunities, so he teamed up with an ambitious technologist, Dev. Together, they are proudly democratizing private equity.
