We believe in the power of actively managed funds.

Relaxing regulation for crowdfunding and alternative investing is a two-sided coin. Individuals should have the opportunity to invest like sophisticated institutions but main street investors are often paired with risky deals that have little oversight of their investment once deployed.

SPVs and rolling funds often focus on access to great deals, and not on ensuring the underlying investments have a positive outcome once capital is deployed.

We believe active fund management matters. It's why Gridline intentionally selects actively managed funds with highly involved fund managers and general partners.

Fund managers should have skin in the game. SPVs and rolling funds can bundle together any opportunity and make money on the management fee but lose nothing if the underlying investments aren't successful. When you see these opportunities announced with rocket sign emojis, you may want to take pause.

The universe of investable underlying opportunities is massive. The managers of Gridline funds source the best and perform heavy due diligence in order to deliver sustainable long-term capital appreciation to their LPs and secure capital for subsequent vintages.

Public companies have strict governance requirements to live up to just to be listed. That layer of protection doesn't automatically exist in alternative asset classes. Fund-backed deals, however, go through an enhanced governance process including audits, non-founder oversight, and more before being funded.
Managers of actively managed funds treat their investments like it's their own money. They spend more than three-quarters of their time working with underlying companies to ensure the best long-term outcomes.
While some GPs don't lose anything when a fund's investments fail to deliver returns, Gridline seeks out funds with GPs that put their own money to work. We ensure funds that we select are led by GPs that have committed their own money of at least 5% of the total fund value.
