New York – October 6, 2016 – Moritz Poehl and Nate Kirk proudly announce the launch of Everside Capital Partners, which is focused exclusively on the US middle and lower-middle business marketplace. Everside will pursue attractive opportunities in direct lending and invest in middle and lower-middle market investment firms with the support of sophisticated, like-minded and institutional long-term partners. Nate said, “Everside is creating a carefully selected, highly diversified portfolio of investments in established US middle and lower-middle market businesses that are looking to finance attractive growth opportunities.”
Everside is an independently owned investment firm, focused on the middle and lower-middle market. It searches diligently for great partnerships with investors and the people and institutions with whom it invests. The firm provides partners with access to the US middle and lower-middle market, diversified by geography and industry. Everside’s approach is based on the cooperation and trust that derives from (i) partnering with geographically focused top performing fund managers and (ii) by having its own highly efficient and scalable origination platform along with a rigorous underwriting and monitoring process executed by an experienced team. Moritz said, “Everside, together with its long-term partners, believes that this market provides superior risk-adjusted returns. Smaller businesses are underserved by banks and large asset managers, a trend that we see continuing; we are excited about partnering with these businesses to realize their full potential.”
The firm is fortunate to have selected exceptional institutional capital partners that share the same values and a strong investment track record. Those qualities, the Everside founders believe, are important in building a sustainable and successful business.
