Siguler Guff is a multi-strategy private equity investment firm which, together with its affiliates has over $10 billion of assets under management. With 20 years of experience investing as a firm in the private markets, Siguler Guff seeks to generate strong, risk-adjusted returns by focusing opportunistically on market niches.
Siguler Guff's investment products include multi-manager funds, direct investment funds and customized separate accounts targeting specific areas of compelling opportunity. The Firm's core investment strategies include distressed and special situations, distressed real estate, small business and emerging markets. Siguler Guff's institutional investment knowledge, sector immersion approach and longstanding relationships provide access to compelling investment opportunities within each of its targeted strategies.
Founded in 1991 within PaineWebber, Siguler Guff became an independent firm in 1995. The Firm currently serves over 500 institutional clients, including corporate and public employee benefit plans, endowments, foundations, government agencies and financial institutions, and more than 600 family office and high net worth investors. Headquartered in New York, Siguler Guff maintains offices in Boston, London, Moscow, Mumbai, São Paulo and Shanghai.
Siguler Guff has grown consistently over the years to now include more than 160 employees across the globe with approximately 110 employees based in the Firm's U.S. offices and 50 employees based in the Firm's international offices. Siguler Guff's investment team consists of 60 experienced professionals.
Siguler Guff's investment philosophy is focused on identifying market inefficiencies that can generate high absolute rates of return and creating efficient solutions to capture them. The Firm believes that private equity presents opportunities at discrete moments in time, and dynamically allocates its clients' capital to take advantage of those opportunities as they arise. Siguler Guff focuses opportunistically on market niches as opposed to pursuing an "indexed" approach to private equity, investing only when the Firm has high conviction that a specific market opportunity has the potential to generate top-tier returns. Siguler Guff's investment approach is active, value-oriented and driven by risk-adjusted outcomes. Each strategy is staffed independently and takes advantage of the Firm's long history as a direct investor to add value well beyond the research and selection of managers.
