Our sponsor is an affiliate of Reverence Capital Partners L.P., a private investment firm focused on the financial services sector. Through our affiliation with Reverence Capital, we intend to capitalize on its private equity and structured credit expertise to source and evaluate attractive, high growth private companies. Although we will not be limited to a particular industry or geographic region in our identification and acquisition of a target company, we believe the financial technology and other growth-oriented subsectors of the financial services industry present particularly attractive investment opportunities.

Milton Berlinski is our chairman and CEO. Mr. Berlinski co-founded Reverence Capital in June 2013 after concluding a 26-year career at Goldman Sachs, which he joined in 1986 and where he served as a founding member of the Financial Institutions Group in Investment Banking, focusing on banks, consumer and commercial finance companies, asset management, insurance and capital markets. He also served as Head of Strategy and Corporate Development in the period after Goldman Sachs’ IPO, assisting the Executive Office and division leaders to create and execute a strategy to build out Goldman Sachs’ global footprint. For the final 10 years of his Goldman Sachs tenure, Mr. Berlinski had global responsibility for coverage of the firm’s financial sponsor and hedge fund clients, overseeing a dramatic increase in revenue from the business and working alongside Goldman Sachs’ Merchant Banking team on co-investment opportunities in transactions involving the firm’s clients.
