“Our fund’s micro managed, portfolio approach to film and venture partner selection, affords the ability to avoid the potential pitfalls of revenue participation in film projects
and the vagaries of excessive fees and charges - thus enhancing the attraction to this form of investment. The use of guarantees rather than immediate funding provides a
greater degree of flexibility for the investors.”
