Independent Sponsors & Co-Investments

We assist independent sponsors and private fund managers with co-investment opportunities in structuring fundraising vehicles, marketing, and negotiating with prospective investors and other sources of funding. While similar in many ways to fund formation, independent sponsor and co-investment vehicles give rise to a unique set of concerns for sponsors and investors, including governance, minority rights, and reporting. Our extensive experience in private equity and venture capital transactions, as well as representing institutional investors in their investment programs provides us with deep practical knowledge of current market terms and practices. Finn Dixon & Herling also assists independent sponsors and sponsors of co-investment with post-formation acquisitions, refinancings, and other transactions.

In addition, we regularly advise institutional investors on their participation in increasingly popular co-investment transactions. We advise on individual opportunities as well as their involvement in, and structuring of, co-investment programs with multiple investors.
