Shepherd Kaplan Krochuk and North & Webster Announce Partnership
BOSTON, November 26, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Shepherd Kaplan Krochuk, LLC (“SKK”), a leading, independently owned, SEC Registered Investment Advisory firm, has partnered with North & Webster SSG, LLC (“N&W”), a Boston-based private equity firm, to offer cutting-edge investment strategies. The partnership brings together SKK’s over 20-year record of experience in Wealth Management and Alternative Investing with the new Private Equity Activist approach of North & Webster. The partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging the strengths of two companies.
North & Webster is focused on take-privates of small-cap, publicly traded companies. “Through their robust deal flow and innovative structuring expertise, we are now able to provide our clients and investors with opportunities to invest in a private-equity strategy focused on the take-private of small, publicly traded companies that have the potential for substantial value creation,” said Tim Krochuk, a Managing Member of SKK. “The North & Webster offerings complement our SKK Ventures opportunistic private equity program.”
SKK’s asset management division provides investors with access to a targeted collection of differentiated strategies in long/short equities, real estate projects, venture capital, and opportunistic private equity. They have created an innovative structure that enhances investment transparency and flexibility by combining in-house analytical and structuring capabilities with a broad network of industry-specific experts and specialists, such as North & Webster.
Sam Kidston, Managing Member of North & Webster said, “Our partnership with SKK provides North & Webster the strength and support that comes with a $6 billion investment management firm, allowing us to focus on identifying attractive investment opportunities in small-cap companies.”
About North & Webster SSG, LLC
North & Webster SSG, LLC is a Special Situations Group that operates as a Private Equity Activist. N&W focuses on finding differentiated opportunities to unlock value in small-cap companies that no longer benefit from being publicly traded. These deals are often overlooked, as they fall into the gray space between private equity and activist investing. N&W leverages its expertise in structuring solutions with a deep experience in unlocking shareholder value through activist strategies. This approach brings the best of both worlds together: attractive return profiles, control, long term holding, potential returns that are uncorrelated to the market, and finding market inefficiencies to create value.
