Private Equity, Venture Capital, Hedge Fund, Family Office and other Financial & Strategic Investments

Financial and Strategic Investments involve investors or companies making usually minority investments in business enterprises short of taking a majority stake or making a full acquisition.  Financial Investors are usually investment firms whose core business is investing, such as Private Equity firms, Venture Capital firms, Hedge Funds, Family Offices and Trusts.  Financial Investors usually are principally interested in a return on their investment, although they also sometimes seek to assemble a portfolio of companies that complement each other.  Strategic Investors are companies in any industry or business that invest in vertically integrated companies, which may be upstream vendors or suppliers, or downstream distributors or customers.  While Strategic Investors also care about their return on investment, they are usually also motivated by the strategic implications of their investment, such as securing their supply or distribution chain, or taking a minority state in a smaller company as a prelude to a full acquisition.
