About Us

Group 10 Capital Management, LLC is an opportunistic investment company that was established to further the entrepreneurial investment activities of its principals. Group 10 manages a series of investment partnerships on behalf of institutional and individual investors.  Group 10 focuses on alternative investments in its areas of expertise: direct lending, real estate,  equities, and medical. For each investment opportunity, Group 10 structures specific platforms tailored to reflect the return expectations, risk tolerances and liquidity preferences of its investors and partners. Our team is experienced in these niche, targeted alternatives and we therefore strive to leverage our knowledge , relationships, and expertise in these specific areas.

Proven Track Record

Group 10 Capital and its partners have demonstrated the ability to originate, analyze, structure, and execute on opportunities with the objective of value creation for all involved. We take pride in our “outside the box” mindset and ability to make quick, yet focused decisions based on years of experience.

Investment Philosophy

We look at the worst case scenario first, and then decide how we go from there.

While most look at only the upside, we take a backward approach determining what the present situation is, and if we invest time, capital and resources what is the worst case if everything goes wrong, before we determine the upside if everything goes to plan. Group 10 takes a bottom up approach focused on mitigating risk first, while simultaneously generating value.

We emphasis a deep rooted belief that in any given situation it needs to be a win-win for all parties involved, as we take pride in our long term relationships.

Strength in Partnerships

Group 10’s strategy is to create value by partnering with best in class operators. We seek opportunities where we can serve as both a capital and knowledge partner. We place utmost importance on long lasting friendships that reach beyond just the boardroom.

Through open communication and alignment of interests, we approach deals as more than just numbers, but as true partnerships. The number “10” represents the first numeral that combines two singular numbers that become one.

In our case 1+1 =10
