We offer large institutional and individual investors the opportunity to invest in specific, individual portfolio companies through a Special Purpose Entity (SPE) set up for each transaction.
Each SPE is a separate special purpose limited liability company. Investment in an Ash Creek Special Purpose Entity provides the large investor with both diversi-fication and an attractive return through a vetted opportunity in a segment generally overlooked or ignored by most large investors.
There is no maximum investment. Ash Creek generally takes a position in SPEs it manages, typically representing a minority of the capital raised, putting its own capital at risk. Ash Creek Principals may also choose to invest in each SPE as individuals, in addition to any stake that the firm takes.
Ash Creek acts as the controlling manager for each SPE in our portfolio, providing direct oversight of each deal for our SPE investors. As the controlling manager, the firm is compensated for raising capital through additional equity and a management fee to be paid by the SPE.
Listed below are businesses in which Ash Creen members are currently involved:
