Mike Rosen became Oxford Financial Group, Ltd.’s Managing Director of Private Equity in 2005. This role was created in direct response to increasing market need and client expectations for private equity investment options—more specifically, direct private equity investments. This role significantly enhanced the firm’s already established and highly reputed private equity investment initiatives. Mike is chair of the Mayfair Investment Committee.
The Mayfair Initiative focuses on creating direct private equity vehicles, primarily in the form of limited liability companies (LLCs) for high-end investment opportunities. Under Mike’s direction, the direct private equity initiative creates investor groups for the purpose of pursuing majority investments in privately held companies.
Our Mayfair investment strategy, like our other alternative strategies, creates a true partnership with a complete alignment of interests. Our clients and management teams have come to expect this and appreciate the value it provides. It is one of many means by which Oxford differentiates itself from the competition.
