AGF’s Strategic Investment in New Holland Capital
AGF’s initial investment in NHC takes the form of a convertible note, securing a 24.99% equity stake in the company. This investment aligns with AGF’s strategy to broaden its Partners Capital AGF platform, which specializes in private assets and alternative strategies. The partnership is set to diversify the platform’s alternative investment offerings and create new growth prospects.
New Holland Capital’s Unique Investment Approach
Founded over 17 years ago, NHC has built a strong reputation for offering absolute return strategies to institutional investors across the liquidity spectrum. The firm currently manages over $5 billion in assets. NHC’s flagship investment platform, Tactical Alpha Multi PM, serves to identify alpha opportunities in both fundamental and quantitative strategies on liquid markets. The aim is to strike a balance between market diversification and capital preservation through absolute return investments.
Special Opportunities and Customized Solutions
In addition to its flagship platform, NHC manages a Special Opportunities strategy. This strategy invests in uncorrelated specialized credit opportunities, including specialized financing and real infrastructure assets. Furthermore, NHC collaborates with institutional investors to provide customized absolute return investment solutions.
Under the terms of the partnership, NHC will maintain its operational independence, and the current leadership team will continue to oversee day-to-day operations.
