Overview

Peak Street Management is a private investment company focused on:
  • Supporting two operating businesses co-owned by Peak Street - Summit and Summit Powder Mountain
  • Monitoring 40+ Peak Street investments including direct equity investments, real estate holdings and LP allocations in leading private equity funds, venture funds and hedge funds
  • Deploying investment capital via structured debt to high-growth cash-flowing businesses at a lower cost of capital than traditional equity
  • Deploying capital into global markets with a primary focus on media, technology, and digital currencies

Background

  • We operate with the highest level of personal and professional integrity and believe in transparency as a core value
  • As a private investment company, our investment horizon is broader and our hold period substantially longer than a typical closed-end fund – we evaluate each investment and partnership as if we were going to be in business together for the next 30 years
  • Our entrepreneurial backgrounds and connection to the global entrepreneurial ecosystem through Elliott and the Summit network allow us to add significant value to our investment partners
  • Our 26 years of combined investment experience across private equity, structured debt, venture capital, and public equities affords us a unique perspective expressed through detailed, proprietary analysis and an ability to look at an investment from a variety of perspectives

Strategy

We have a broad and flexible investment mandate under which we evaluate future investment opportunities and partnerships - from real estate to private equity and debt investments to venture / growth equity. Our preferred strategy is to deploy investment capital to fund high-growth initiatives in cash-flow positive companies via structured debt.
