Welcome back to PE Value Drivers.
In this latest issue of PE Value Drivers, I talk with Parker Davis from Slate Capital Group. Parker is a Partner at Slate Capital, which he joined in 2010. Slate Capital is an independent sponsor originally based in Baltimore and recently expanded to Nashville and Cincinnati. In his role, Parker focuses on developing new opportunities and managing the firm’s current portfolio.
As an independent sponsor, Slate partners with other investors such as wealthy individuals, family offices, and institutions to raise money for individual investments, rather than managing a fund. This structure allows Slate to be creative and flexible in its investment approach and plays well with owners who often roll over their equity into the new structure. While generally industry agnostic, Slate often focuses on companies with a business services component like distribution, light manufacturing and food and beverage.
