Philosophy 
 
 
The underlying philosophy of Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner investment approach consists of funding its private equity sponsored transactions with a combination of equity and debt.
 
 
 
 
Unlike most private family offices:

1. Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner is not in the business of placing money with other funds or investment managers to manage.

2. Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner is not in the money management, brokerage or securities business.

3. Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner is a “strategic advisor” and “investor” in private equity transactions with a focus on the Energy, Industrial, Technology and Security sectors.

Strategy

Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner underwrites the equity portion of a transaction, both directly and through its core group family offices on a deal-by-deal and no-fee basis – allowing its partner clients the opportunity to co-invest in its equity transactions. A model that reflects its preferences for investment discretion, where many high-net-worth investors are hands-on business owners themselves.

When debt financing is required to structure an optimum transaction, it is provided by the wide array of leading financial institutions with whom Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner has deep relationships with.

Although far from formulaic, Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner’s private equity transactions share some basic features.

Once it makes an investment, it works with companies management to revitalize the business — making it more productive, more competitive, and more profitable. It does so by streamlining operations, investing in future growth, and growing the top and bottom lines for the benefit of all stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, and the communities in which its businesses operate.

Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner approaches business and investments as industrialists. The Firm works closely with the management teams of companies that have strong business franchises, attractive growth prospects, leading market positions, and the ability to generate superior returns and stay deeply involved in the operations of the businesses, providing them with substantial resources over an average investment period of three to five years.

Investment Scope

Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner is particularly interested in backing and co-investing with other investment groups in private plays of established companies all across the U.A.E., China, India , select Africa and Latin America.

Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner is not a lender nor a securities broker dealer. Only a strategic advisor and private equity investor.

Ipocampus Holding Odoni Partner likes to particularly back rollups, consolidations and buildups, along with growth capital financing throughout the asset class categories. The Firm is industry agnostic and does invest globally as long as it is dealing with the right “operators”.
