Over the past two decades, we believe there are two key macro-shifts that have defined investment themes and the global business landscape: ‘analogue-to-digital’ and ‘complicated-to-complex’.
Our thesis is that these two shifts will create unparalleled innovation premiums in private equity markets and will therefore define the alpha generating opportunities across multiple business in the 2020s.
We combine our macro-view with best in class independent research, valuation and due-diligence to identify and capture absolute returns across the private equity value chain, uncorrelated to public markets and irrespective of whether these liquid assets are embarking on another ‘Roaring 20s’ of strong growth, or whether inflationary and debt pressures will continue to cause economic headwinds.
Our investment strategy is to find companies and assets that fulfil all four of the following criteria:
We pride ourselves on being the antithesis to the standard ‘diversification’ approach in portfolio allocation that is so typical amongst the majority of portfolio allocators.
Our strategy leads to aggressive capital accumulation through allocation within carefully targeted verticals and assets across private markets, rather than the traditional diversification across multiple asset classes according to the belief that this will provide greater protection against risks.
As an investment firm, due to our singular due-diligence infrastructure and valuation capabilities, Spire Capital selectively collaborates together with family offices, always as a co-investor, for directly mandated, off-market deals that family offices wish to participate and also separately invest in.
Our preferred range for seed to Series-A is $100k – $5m, and for growth stage to pre-IPO our preferred range is between $10M – $20M.
