Our distribution management business creates customized programs specifically tailored to client objectives and risk tolerances with the overall goal of seeking to enhance returns on distributed private market investments. We launched this unique business line with the 2013 acquisition of Shott Capital Management and an expert team of professionals that has been managing post-distribution assets for more than 20 years.
- Proactive approach to distribution management distinguishes us from client-based solutions as well as competing distribution management offerings
- Our PiPE distribution pipeline report provides a lens to the potential future, and enables us to establish a fundamental view and price target on potential in-kind stock distributions well ahead of the actual distribution event
- Unique approach has often resulted in our participation in a significant share of initial trading volume before others have fully assessed their actual market exposure
The Hamilton Lane Edge
We take a proactive approach in researching our universe of private equity-backed companies, enabling our investment team to have an opinion on a company prior to lock-up release.
Our operations team on average has more than 20 years of distribution management experience, as of September 30, 2020. We oversee the post-distribution process from notification to the return of capital.
Our trading desk has handled more than 27,000 distributions as of September 30, 2020. We focus on finding liquidity in distribution related securities and in competitive selling environments.
The Technology Advantage
Our proprietary database, comprised of 30 years of in-kind stock distribution history, helps to inform the construction of our proactive approach to distribution management. The database provides insight into the distribution tendencies of general partners, post-distribution stock performance and market timing.
