Private Investments: How It Works
WR Hambrecht + Co often invests in private companies both early stage venture capital investments and later stage investments, including leveraged buyouts. WRH+Co typically co-invests with other investors in such deals. The firm generally makes available a portion of each private deal to WRH+Co brokerage account holders. WRH+Co receives 20% of the profits on the syndicated portion of each deal and a 2% management fee. SEC regulations mandate that we offer these opportunities to Accredited Investors and Qualified Purchasers only. WRH+Co and affiliates have invested over $100 million since inception.
