The Company: Privately held independent registered investment advisor (RIA) that provides wealth, asset, and business management services to high-net-worth individuals and families. The Company has a variety of unique services not typical of traditional RIAs including access to alternative investments.
Assets Under Management: $300MM+
The Financing Situation: The Company was experiencing rapid growth in AUM and planned to go to market to find a strategic partner that could provide the financial and operational support needed to continue to scale the business. Ahead of that transaction, Company management wanted to secure a non-dilutive loan to help finance operational burn and extend runway. The capital would allow the Company to continue to add AUM and give it time to improve enterprise value ahead of a transaction.
The Solution: SG was able to get comfortable with the transaction due to the Company’s sticky recurring revenue business model, projected growth in run-rate revenue supported by a strong pipeline, the enterprise value of the Company, and its clear path to profitability. SG was able to close the transaction within 10 days of a signed term sheet.
