Spruce Private Inestors announces investment from Estancia Capital Management

Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: Spruce Private Investors, LLC (“Spruce”), an award-winning wealth management firm that serves as an outsourced Chief Investment Officer (“OCIO”) and advisor for family offices, foundations and endowments, and Estancia Capital Management, LLC (“Estancia”), an investment firm focused exclusively on the asset management industry, today announced that Estancia acquired a minority, non-controlling interest in Spruce. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Spruce will primarily reinvest the proceeds of the investment into the firm for purposes of further deepening its investment and client services teams and continuing to expand its technology platform and operational infrastructure. Spruce is also expanding equity ownership to a broader number of key employees. Spruce will continue to operate independently and under the leadership of the existing management team. There will be no changes to the firm’s investment philosophy, operations or personnel.

“Our firm seeks to continuously improve and deepen its investment processes, team and operations,” said John Bailey, Spruce’s Founder and CEO. “We are delighted to partner with Estancia. The principals share our vision and fully support our commitment to further enhancing the client experience, while remaining true to our roots as an independent and objective investment adviser.”

“Spruce is a premier wealth manager with a proven track record of both preserving and growing capital across market cycles,” said Takashi Moriuchi, a partner at Estancia Capital Management, who will also join the company’s board of directors. “Spruce is an innovative and sophisticated firm, providing clients customized solutions-based investment strategies incorporating a wide array of traditional and alternative assets including hedge funds and private investments. We look forward to working closely with the deeply experienced Spruce team to help them expand their already impressive investment strategies and the services it offers its clients.”

Spruce also announced today that Donald J. Herrema, the former CEO of Bessemer Trust, will chair Spruce’s board of directors. Don previously served as a senior advisor to Spruce. Nancy Lambert, a former Managing Director at Citigroup Private Bank, has also joined Spruce as a senior managing director in the Portfolio Management Group.
