Shepard Capital Partners employs a syndication approach to fund transactions through a network of qualified investment partners that desire the types of investment return profiles that the firm pursues. This allows Shepard Capital to maintain stringent quality criteria when evaluating opportunities without the time pressures associated with traditional funds. The majority of our transactions have a current pay component, multiples of asset coverage for the capital invested and a target return in the low to mid 20% range. Through syndication, Shepard Capital’s investors are able to evaluate each opportunity individually, as opposed to being beholden to the deals selected by traditional funds, and can participate at a more manageable level of investment. Individual investor participation is typically in the $100,000 to $500,000 range.
