Silverleaf Venture Partners LLC (“Silverleaf”) a cannabis industry investment manager has launched a strategic partnership with Hedgeye, a research firm which covers individual public companies involved in the cannabis industry as well other public equities across industries and global markets.
Hedgeye will provide research and investment consulting services to the General Partner managing Silverleaf’s third investment fund.
“The partnership allows Silverleaf to tap Hedgeye’s deep analytical expertise and knowledge of the public side of the cannabis industry which will help sharpen our analysis with prospective portfolio investments,” said Andre Haroche of Silverleaf Venture Partners, LLC. Silverleaf will also receive access to Hedgeye’s Cannabis research which is led by Managing Director, Shayne Laidlaw.
Keith McCullough, Hedgeye’s CEO added, “This partnership broadens Hedgeye’s unique perspective into the private investing side of the cannabis sector. It increases our existing deep expertise and will ultimately lead to more insightful research for our clients.”
Silverleaf’s third private fund is expected to be $25 Million in AUM and is anticipated to close by the end of the First Quarter 2020. “We technically haven’t started raising capital for this third investment vehicle but nearly a quarter of the fund is already spoken for,” said Douglas Hannah, of Silverleaf. He added, “While Silverleaf has a strong track record, some of this momentum comes from savvy investors who are now recognizing, after this summers’ sell off in cannabis equities, that 2020 is an extremely attractive time to invest.-Business Wire
