Founded in 1998, Cordish Private Ventures (CPV) is the private investment arm of The Cordish Companies and Cordish Family. CPV seeks superior risk-adjusted returns with a long-term investment horizon by investing in private funds run by exceptional managers, and by investing directly in private operating businesses in partnership with talented management teams. CPV's primary focus is on investing in 'small cap' private equity opportunities. Within its targeted segment, CPV seeks to (i) partner with experienced managers by making commitments to, or purchasing secondary interests in, private equity funds, (ii) co-invest alongside its partner funds and other leading sponsors, and (iii) selectively make control equity investments in US operating businesses.
