The Fund has not missed a quarterly distribution since its inception in 2013. Lateral manages fixed income and private equity strategies that seek to help investors diversify their portfolios from public market volatility while generating consistent quarterly cash returns. Lateral invests in growing, established private businesses in the US through senior secured loans and minority equity stakes.

About Lateral Investment Management

The firm provides growth capital to non-sponsored, lower- middle market companies through the direct origination of short-term loans and minority equity stakes. Our private market strategies focus on investing in lower-middle market firms that have limited capital availability due to the structural dislocation in the US capital markets. We partner with owner-operators who have high conviction in their future outlook and want the support of an institutional investor without the loss of control and dilution of a traditional private equity partner. Lateral is an SEC registered firm* with approximately $450MM in assets under management. The company is headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and has an office in New York City.
