JENKINTOWN, PA – Direct investment opportunities in the secondary and co-investment marketplace are a growing part of Alden Investment Group, thanks to its family office affiliate, Old Greenwich Capital Partners (OGCP).
OGCP, an alternative asset manager founded in 2005, offers institutional and qualified investors a la carte access to proprietary and multi-asset class deals sourced from independent sponsors, private equity, venture capital, hedge fund, and real estate managers.
“Secondary transactions are a growing part of the capital markets business at Alden,” said Lee Calfo, CEO of Alden Investment Group. “We are seeing increased demand on both the issuer and purchaser sides of these trades. We plan to continue to build the firm’s capabilities and relationships in this area to enhance our presence in this market and our ability to complete these transactions.”
The trend for U.S. companies to remain private for a longer period of time reduces the number of public companies available to most investors. With the recent shift from public to private markets, OGCP brings value to investors with liquidity access that would otherwise be difficult to achieve. Highlighted opportunities, with values from $10 million to $50 million, include companies such as Ripple, Robinhood, Lemonade, Airbnb, DraftKings and Instacart.
Jeffrey Arsenault, founder and principal partner of Old Greenwich Capital Partners, explains the catalyst for OGCP’s growth over the last several years. “We have a presence throughout North America and Europe with endowments and family offices and continue to see demand for secondary transactions. Our goal is to align ourselves with strategic, trusted partners and facilitate successful trades.”
Demand for trades in these types of transactions will continue to grow, and OGCP is ready as a dedicated institutional desk for wealth managers, asset managers, family offices and financial institutions while providing the professional and meticulous processes their customers expect.
