Alignvest Management Corporation is an alternative investment management firm created with the founding principle of increasing the alignment between asset managers, their sources of capital and the businesses and entrepreneurs in which they invest. The firm was founded exclusively with the capital of its Partners and commits a very significant portion of its own capital to support each of its investments – a proposition that allows for more explicit alignment with all constituents.
Alignvest’s capital is discretionary and long-term, with the flexibility to invest across industries, asset classes, growth stages and ownership structures. Alignvest seeks to generate attractive returns for investors by creating or sourcing proprietary investment opportunities where it can add value, often in partnership with leading management teams. The firm has no legacy issues and has an unfettered ability to invest in situations that have the most attractive risk-adjusted returns. Alignvest emphasizes North American-based investment opportunities, with select interest in situations with international attributes.
The Partners of the firm have a strong combination of investment and operational expertise. In aggregate, they have created and managed five successful operating businesses which upon exit generated total sale proceeds of $6.5 billion, and have built and led large, highly profitable businesses within global financial and consulting firms, including Goldman Sachs, the Boston Consulting Group and Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan. Investors in their businesses have included prominent pension funds, leading private equity firms and ultra-high net worth individuals.
Alignvest is building an alternative asset management company with global reach and complete investor alignment that seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted absolute returns, and in so doing create substantial value for all of its constituents.
