Investment Strategy

Red Pine seeks to generate high, risk-adjusted returns for its investors

We take advantage of attractive asset-based and real estate-based investment opportunities throughout the United States.

Red Pine generally targets cash flowing investments and originates loans backed by tangible and intangible assets that are below the radar of larger, less agile investment firms. More information below.

When underwriting the acquisition of a company or real estate asset, Red Pine takes a flexible investment approach in order to pursue the most compelling opportunities and unlock hidden value

Red Pine’s ventures often invest directly in private companies. In other instances, Red Pine will take public companies private. Red Pine may also acquire assets on a stand-alone basis or as the foundation for building a company from the ground up, if doing so provides an effective means of owning and operating assets. In distressed situations, Red Pine may purchase corporate debt, acquire assets or provide rescue financing, including debtor-in-possession financing, in order to lead a corporate restructuring or recapitalization. In all cases, Red Pine focuses on control-oriented investments where Red Pine can create value through active involvement.


A key way that Red Pine seeks to create value within its portfolio companies is by helping companies grow through corporate and real estate acquisitions. Red Pine works in partnership with management to optimize the capital structures of its portfolio companies and to identify incremental investment opportunities that will be accretive to their core operations.

Red Pine has a history of acquiring assets that have unrecognized value

The true value of such businesses and real estate opportunities may remain unrealized because:

  • Asset is in transition or needs to be transitioned, and that transition has not yet occurred
  • Dislocation or disconnect between the true ability of the asset to generate revenue and the reflection of the asset’s value in the marketplace
  • Misperceived imperfections in the asset which have not been properly analyzed and quantified
