Decades of Expertise in Alternative Investment Strategies
Dorchester invests on a primary and secondary market basis in Limited Partner and General Partner interests of Hedge, Private Equity, Real Estate, Venture, and other funds, and as well as assets directly.
By monetizing less-liquid Limited Partner (“LP”) interests in alternative asset managers, like Hedge and Private Equity fund LP interest, Dorchester enables institutional investors to regain control of their capital, mission, and priorities.
In the Fall of 2001, Dorchester was founded by two former Hedge Fund managers to manage their own and others capital in a multi-strategy Fund-of-Hedge Funds (“FoHF”) and over time, in response to market conditions, investment opportunities and client needs, it evolved to create and manage other alternative asset investment products (e.g. credit focused FoHF, ERISA-only FoHF, early stage manager FoHF, Emerging Markets/Global focused FoHF, Separately Manages Accounts (“SMA”) and co-investment vehicles).
Since 2008, Dorchester is believed to be among the earliest firms to participate in size and with dedicated vehicles in the secondary market for Hedge Fund LP interests, but also including less-liquid, orphaned or esoteric assets, and co-investments with Hedge Fund and Private Equity managers. In essence, Dorchester “factors” LP interests from sellers who prefer instant liquidity and where the “receivable” is an LP interest, whether a redemption, side-pocket, or otherwise less-liquid.
Since 2012, in response to investment opportunities and client needs, Dorchester manages a dedicated credit opportunities strategy, which offers differentiated credit exposures and returns by sourcing and investing in credit opportunities directly, or through select managers and/or SMAs. By monitoring, and timely changing allocations according to market opportunities. Dorchester’s credit opportunities strategy has return streams that compare favorably versus relative benchmarks, including direct investment indices.
