Our Approach

After collectively investing in excess of $3 billion in capital at The Blackstone Group, Och-Ziff and KKR, the principals formed Silver Swan in 2015 with their own capital and the support of several family offices and institutions.

We typically invest between $5 million and $40 million per transaction. Our flexible mandate includes equity and debt investments.

We have a disciplined due diligence process, and we thoughtfully evaluate a company’s potential before progressing to valuation and investment terms. We are committed to transparency and fairness, while providing constructive feedback to prospective partners throughout the investment process.

We're a different kind of investment group.

We don't pretend to be for everyone.
