Established in 2009 in partnership with institutional Russian capital, The SCP Group has grown into a flexible investment and management organisation that can both build platforms from scratch and play a central role in managed club deals. The firm acts on behalf of its initial Russian investors, as well as institutional and UHNW co-investors from across the globe, providing access to a pipeline of proprietary products in the most mature and liquid private markets.
The SCP Group relies on a strong origination network and deep industry knowledge to identify investment themes and develop new products. It operates an ‘owner approach,’ with a non-discretionary management style that keeps investors in control of capital at key stages of the investment cycle. The firm also employs a simplified fee model that ensures a continued alignment of interests.
The SCP Group’s unconventional approach allows it to deploy institutional capital in pre-institutional situations and capitalise on the eventual re-rating of valuations once an asset category receives mainstream recognition. The firm prioritises investments that combine attractive cash flow yields with value-added potential, and target opportunistic total returns on a shorter-than-average holding period.
