Arena selectively enters into joint ventures with partners who can provide access to proprietary deal flow. When considering joint ventures, we look for partners with unique sourcing capabilities that differentiate them from the rest of the market...the expertise to guide due diligence...and an understanding of situational nuances so they can help properly structure the investment.
Arena believes in the alignment of interests and seeks out joint venture partners who will be both strategically and financially aligned in each investment. While Arena may provide the majority of the capital required to execute on investments, we work together with our partners to ensure that we are making the best-informed, empirically-driven decisions.
Potential partners have deep expertise in specific niches and have access to industry insiders and potential borrowers. We have formed joint ventures with many types of experts, including other specialized investment funds, consulting agencies and veterans of various industries. Given our flexible mandate, we are able to come up with creative structures that mutually benefit all parties involved.
