Veridien Capital's founders sought to leverage over 50 years' combined experience working with both well-established and emerging investment firms to deliver clear and effective strategic playbooks to investment managers seeking to become successful firms within the institutional market.
In addition to providing capital, we partner with investors and existing management teams to identify areas of strength, weakness and opportunity in designing customized marketing, distribution and operating plans to help company founders realize their objectives.
