For over three decades, we have engaged in private equity and venture capital investing,
generating above-market returns
while providing leadership and philanthropic support for scores of non-profit projects.
The organizations we support are varied: some serve local communities while others are global in scope. Each of these organizations is animated by caritas.
We began in 1989 by investing a small amount of our own personal funds to create our own business. We purchased a variety of portfolios of loans and continually refined our mathematical models, reconstructing our portfolios accordingly.
Five years later — after having purchased over $1.5 billion face value of loans — we sold the majority of that business to another private equity fund.
Through our various affiliates, we have since 1995 underwritten over $20 billion in receivables and have invested in the following areas: Lending, fintech, insurance, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, energy production, real estate management, bond trading, hedge funds, media distribution, EdTech, predictive algorithms, microelectronics, and investment brokerage.
