Long-run perspective requires long-term capital.
Unlike conventional private equity firms with investment time horizons dictated by the constraints of their funds life, Spotlight invests only long-term, patient capital. This capital base affords us the flexibility to focus on and invest in value creation over the long run. As a result, Spotlight is able to take a truly long-run perspective and make strategic decisions that are always in the long-term best interest of the companies in which we invest. Compared to conventional private equity firms, this enables better alignment with management teams because what is in the long-term best interest of the company – and not the fund – always comes first.
Our limited partners don’t just contribute capital; they also add value.
Spotlight’s portfolio companies directly benefit from our extensive global network of limited partners that includes successful business leaders drawn from numerous industries. These limited partners actively lend their expertise and network of relationships for the benefit of Spotlight’s portfolio companies. Through our limited partners, which include family offices, high net worth individuals, and select institutional investors, Spotlight has in excess of $250 million of investible capital to deploy into new investments. Since 2007, we have invested over $350 million of equity capital in transactions with 13 companies having aggregate enterprise value of more than $1 billion.
