The value of Independent Sponsors to capital sources, such as Private Equity firms like Boyne, is their focused knowledge of specific industries, the relationships they have within those sectors, their ability to identify and bring deals to the table that have already passed an initial vetting process, and the exclusivity that usually attends these deals.
Once an Independent Sponsor commits to looking for a Private Equity partner to fund a deal, what’s next? How do they choose the right partner? Not all Private Equity firms are the same. A PE firm’s size, geographic location, industry focus, desire to partner, and other factors help determine the right candidate.
