About Us

Kudu provides asset managers worldwide with durable capital solutions tailored to special situations: generational ownership transfers, legacy partner liquidity, management buyouts, and acquisition and growth finance. Kudu also offers a range of advisory services to help its asset manager partners sustain and expand their businesses while remaining independent.

Kudu’s capital partner is White Mountains Insurance Group, Ltd. (NYSE: WTM)

Why We’re Different

Kudu’s approach is designed to sustain firm independence while also offering strategic guidance.

Minority Stakes

Kudu structures equity investments to keep the majority of equity in the hands of the principals. Board seats are generally optional and firms are free to pursue their strategic initiatives.

Minimal Disruption

Kudu does not dictate liquidity requirements, thereby minimizing disruption to client and consultant relationships.


Kudu’s managing partners will assist in developing a growth strategy tailored to a firm’s offerings.

Flexible Capital

Kudu’s investments can be permanent or designed to revert equity to management after a term.
