Focus & Strategy

Compelling Asset Class

The emergence of Sports, Media & Entertainment as a institutional asset class presents a timely and compelling market opportunity, given strong fundamentals, low or no correlation with equity markets, and proven track-record of growth and resilience through turbulent macroeconomic cycles, for over a generation.


We are focused on partnering with established and growing businesses, with an opportunity to further grow and scale through elevated strategies and operations, from the capital and resources we can provide.

Flexible & Differentiated

We have the ability and flexibility to invest across asset and transaction types – on both a minority and control basis – enabling us to construct a differentiated portfolio, built with ideal deal structures, bespoke to individual companies.

Long-Term Partnership

Above all, we seek long-term alignment with partners (founders, management teams, Boards of Directors, rights-holders, and other investors and shareholders), who can realize outsized benefit from our long-term, stable capital support, and a collaborative investor relationship.

Professional & Amateur Sports

Sports teams, leagues, associations, governing bodies, and rights-holders – spanning professional to collegiate, and youth to participatory athletics.

Media & Entertainment

High-engagement content and live events, including streaming, gaming, music, and other forms of direct-to-consumer entertainment.
