Our Process - Capital Base
Over the years, we have been fortunate to maintain tremendous continuity with our investors, which include many of the world's largest endowments, foundations, pension funds, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds. Many of our investors play a key role in fields such as education, healthcare and scientific research, while others provide for workers’ retirement income. They represent a diverse cross-section of distinguished institutions.
During and after their company's formal relationship with us, many of our portfolio company managers choose to invest their own resources with Direct Asset Partners, and we are happy with this further endorsement.
Direct Asset Partners has raised $11 billion of private equity capital through eight investment funds, since 1984. Indeed, the investment commitment of our own staff makes us our own largest investor. Our own interests are truly parallel with those of our limited partners.
Direct Asset Partners has a successful track-record of over thirty years as a leading private equity firm. Here is some more information about the company.
We focus on high quality companies that exhibit earnings sustainability and growth, taking positions in public securities, with a bias toward being long-term investors.
When circumstances, internal or external to companies combine to depress their valuation, we take the opportunity to invest at such attractive valuations.
Only after it has been deeply researched, and it presents a compelling long-term return, does a company make its way into our portfolio.
