Alternative investment firm Tamra Tacoma Capital Partners launches

Former Bain consultant Yoav Bergman, renewable energy fund manager Matthew Brown, real estate professional and former investment banker Patrick Donovan and film production, acquisition and distribution executive and finance consultant Shane Starr have teamed up to launch Tamra-Tacoma Capital Partners, a USD500m alternative investment firm.

Tamra-Tacoma’s mandate is to deliver value investments in renewable energy and commercial real estate, as well as filmed entertainment and digital media.

The firm strives to outperform traditional investor returns by capturing mispriced risk in cash flowing alternative investments. Tamra-Tacoma accomplishes this through innovative analysis, subjecting all investments to a vetting process that combines diverse risk analysis strategies from each of the principals’ industries. 

"We demonstrate confidence in our unique strategies by investing in every structure that we market," says Bergman.

The firm is currently underwriting 50 MW of utility-scale solar installations across Latin America, as well as a total of 75 MW of wind generation in the US.

"Alternative investing does not have to be defined by uncorrelated products. There is a benefit to approaching traditional investments such as real estate with non-traditional strategies. This is evident in our unique approach to the vacation rental market where we are seeing income increase while simultaneously reducing risk," says Donovan. 

In association with the Kona Group, a Hawaiian asset manager, Tamra-Tacoma is investing in a portfolio of undervalued and distressed commercial real estate.

In Q2 2013, the firm is planning a multi-studio co-financing venture and is selecting a portfolio of event movies with A-list talent based upon source material with a built-in awareness. Principals are heavily involved in the selection process and are managing the structured capital transactions on behalf of investors to eliminate cash flow leakage and maintain proper interest alignment with all parties.

The Wealth Adviser Awards 2013 for the top wealth manager and service providers will be held in London towards the end of Q1 2013. Please click here to nominate your product/firm.
