WP Global Partners

Through an active investment approach, WP Global will partner with entrepreneurs hungry to grow private companies as well as fund managers determined to achieve superior returns. WP Global’s strategy is juxtaposition to simply administering investments in companies and in funds. Our unique strategy unchains us from traditional conventions and perceived risk, ultimately allowing our partners to build long-standing, high growth, and influential organizations. You’re more likely to see us in person than talk to us over the phone because we believe knowledge is acquired on-sight through interpersonal engagement – we are continuously attending events and visiting companies. WP Global creates quality deal flow through vigorous outbound efforts and generates investment returns through active management. We leverage our partners for their operational and domain experience and they leverage us for our network. By proactively investing directly into hundreds of private companies, private equity funds, and venture capital funds, WP Global generates a synergy of deal flow that is unrivaled. Along with leveraging our network, WP Global employs portfolio modeling and other investment management tools to gain foresight into the market momentum of the thousands of small private companies, which ultimately provides investment conviction.
