Vision

Domain Expertise For Family Offices

Our primary strength is in our ability to source unique transaction opportunities in which assets and companies can be acquired for a fraction of their true value.  Not all the profit is "made on the buy", but a significant amount of value can be captured by being in the right assets at the right time.  

For sellers, although we may not represent the highest price option, our capital structure and unique due diligence process usually means we're fastest to a commitment, and certainty of closure.


Value Generation

We develop deep expertise in the sectors we invest in by partnering with renown professionals in the sectors.  Quite often transactions come to us from seasoned management teams seeking to effect a buyout.


Investment Thesis Cross Check

We co-invest with sector experts and recognized institutional investors with sophisticated infrastructure. Our co-investors are a significant component of our investment process and serve as a check and balance on our own investment programs.




Investment Diversity for Family Offices

PPMT structures investments as asset specific limited partnerships.  PPMT Capital has a deep bench of  top grade industry vetted domain experts that manage specifics assets through GP/LP structures.  This approach provides limited partners with a clear path to unpromoted investment performance through return of capital and target IRR.  Family offices that, for instance, may not have expertise in a particular asset class, can now invest with the confidence of knowing that industry experts at the GP level are manging their LP assets. All PPMT limited partnerships file quarterly reports and annual audits. 


Our limited partnerships are generally structured as "cash flow engines".  We define a cash flow engine as a limited partnership that owns a mature cash flow producer, capable of generating private equity level performance.    


Our Approach

The Client

Family offices by their very definition, require a high degree of confidentiality.  At the onset, PPMT enters  into a very robust non-disclosure agreement with the client.  From that point, over the course of several meetings, we learn about the tactical and strategic objectives of the family.  This affords the family the opportunity to learn about the full capabilities of PPMT Group, comprised of our investment arm, PPMT Capital, and PPMT Strategic, our accounting, tax and advisory arm.

Strategy

Based on an updated understanding or the clients requirements, we formulate a a financial plan, which covers many areas from investment sourcing to tax planning.  Clients have varying degrees of requirements, so our program is flexible, allowing clients to use one or all of our offerings.  PPMT Capital's sourcing approach broadly covers:


  • Investment Thesis
  • Geographic Focus
  • Sector Focus
  • Investment Horizon


In terms of administration, PPMT Strategic covers areas such as:

  • Estate and Wealth Transfer
  • Tax Planning
  • Risk Management
  • Insurance Planning
  • Accounting and Administration

Manage

Private company asset management cover many areas from risk management to exit planning. However our management framework falls into two approaches.

  1. Passive - PPMT has a series of general partners which manage LP investments.  The management of each GP are  domanin experts with specific experience in the practice areas.  We currently have domain expertise in four sectors: Real Estate, Energy, Industrials & Healthcare.
  2. Active - Many clients prefer to own and manage assets directly.  For those clients, leveraging our curated proprietary sourcing, we do not manage the assets.  The client specifies sourcing characteristics, and we make recommendations.
