Skin in the game.
Valedor’s partners will deploy meaningful capital in each opportunity directly and/or through the Valedor Partners Fund.
We believe our approach will be attractive to investors who seek discrete investment opportunities as opposed to blind-pool funds, where due diligence is limited to evaluating a general partner, strategy, business cycle, and past track record.
We will seek opportunities in which we believe we can use our operational, financial, and technological expertise to create long-term value through durable profit improvements resulting in higher growth, cash flow, and returns.
With the exception of upstream and midstream energy and real estate (sectors we generally plan to avoid in the current cycle due to high levels of local, organized capital managed by qualified sponsors), we are relatively agnostic about sector or industry, and are flexible as to where we fit within a capital structure so long as we believe the opportunity exists to enact meaningful operational change.
We seek to structure our investments to achieve strong returns on invested
capital while also limiting our downside risk through asset coverage, preferred structures, staged
investments (equity lines), and/or active involvement and value-added initiatives.
