Long-Term Alternative Investments


Cresset Partners is a private investment firm focused on providing its investors with direct access to investment opportunities in private companies, real estate and sponsor products. We focus on building outstanding, lasting partnerships by investing permanent capital, resources and expertise to create sustainable value. We believe that long-term investing creates better alignment and reduces risk and inefficiencies, leading to better outcomes for all shareholders.

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

STRUCTURES TAILORED TO INDIVIDUAL INVESTORS – Investments can be offered with key aspects in mind including fee structures, diversification, J-Curve, and interim liquidity.
