Investors & Alignment
We take the necessary steps to ensure a genuine alignment of interests exists at every level of SFW.
The SFW professionals are among the largest investors in our fund, with each investing substantial personal capital. In addition, the management teams we support make meaningful personal investments in their own companies, and we create attractive incentive structures to further increase management ownership in business value enhancement.
To further demonstrate our alignment with investors and management, we do not charge transaction fees when we acquire or divest a business, unlike most private equity firms.
Ultimately, SFW and the management teams we support will be measured by the growth in value of each business. We therefore structure and focus the economic incentives for management teams of each business, and SFW, to reward capital appreciation.
