About Cresset Partners
Cresset Partners (“CP”) was founded with the goal of providing investors access to an ecosystem of private market opportunities. Our team has a team of industry professionals to source, evaluate, and execute on private market opportunities, complemented by an experienced group of the firm’s advisors.
Alternative Investment Thesis
- Historically, long-term investments have the ability to create significant wealth through compounding growth opportunities
- As the number of publicly traded companies has decreased over the years, the opportunities for growth investments in the public market have decreased
- Due to regulatory burdens, public company costs and the abundance of private capital, we expect companies to trend towards private capital rather than going public
- While many private market opportunities are available only to large-scale investors such as Sovereign Wealth Funds, Private Equity firms, and large Family Offices – we believe that a broad cross-section of high-net worth and Family Office investors should have access to investments in these asset classes
