The Gresham House Private Asset strategy provides investors with opportunities to access niche alternative specialist investment strategies and illiquid assets over a long-term investment horizon, aiming for superior returns after costs, over the medium to long term.
The investment objective is to achieve absolute returns principally through capital gains supplemented with the generation of a longer-term income yield. There is a bias in the approach towards private equity but the strategy also invests in public equity and specialist asset classes managed by Gresham House such as infrastructure and housing.
The investment team has a strong long-term track record in managing private and specialist asset classes and is further supported by an experienced Investment Committee. Focus is on smaller UK companies where there is an opportunity for value creation through strategic, operational or management initiatives and which demonstrate strong underlying operational cashflow and attractive ROCE. For larger investors, we provide an opportunity to participate in our co-investment service that allows our investors to invest further with us on a deal–by–deal basis.
