How the Investment Process Works
A selection committee comprised of an internal DFC team and an independent private equity consultant conducts extensive manager evaluations. All applications that meet the published selection criteria will be considered.
Evaluation of prospective fund managers considers the following criteria:
- Viability and thoughtfulness of the proposal
- Relevant track record of the prospective management team
- Cohesiveness of the management team and its experience managing third party capital
- Ability of the manager to raise sufficient equity capital to support the investment thesis
