Alpha in your organization & investments

We know what it’s like to work directly with general partners and how frustrating, unrewarding and costly it can be.

We spent years as a fund-less sponsor and have been deep “inside” some of the top PE shops and know how little they actually know and do. We can train you to do what they do and more at a fraction of the cost and get you better returns in your direct investments.

Have an underfunded pension with high fees and low returns? We can help.

Assess

Have your entire organization including your direct team take our licensed online and confidential Organizational Effectiveness Survey* and have all your managers take our licensed Management Effectiveness Survey*.

With over forty years of data, these surveys predict future financial and organizational success. They also provide specific recommendations for critical issues. Both surveys together take a total of 30 to 50 minutes per person.

Plan

Leveraging our licensed surveys, develop a long-term strategic plan including the content of our robust direct investment training. This process typically requires ten to twenty meetings of typically one to two hours over three to six months of your time.

Partner

Once we’ve developed a long-term plan, decide how much you want us involved going forward. We can do very little or most of the legwork executing on your plan as well as training your direct team. Up to you.

At a fraction of the cost of GP fees, we can train your team to source, assess, diligence, close, and manage your own direct investments better than the best GPs as well as improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your entire organization over the long-term.

“GroundSwell brought a level of holistic insight to my own portfolio management that I didn’t know could exist in one place. Now all my direct investments use their platform.”
