Solutions Distribution Management

Seeking to enhance the realized value of our clients’ distributions of publicly‐traded stock through active portfolio management

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 22 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
