Search Funds have been quite common in recent past years as it helps reduce the direct involvement of financiers from taking an active role in a particular market. There are two types of Searchers engaging in market analysis to get a suitable target that such a Searcher can use to pitch to the funders to get the funds to acquire or fund a company.
The Searchers fall under self-financed and financed Searcher. A self-financed searcher uses such measures to enhance share ownership or lack of debt financing upon securing a company with a good portfolio – on the one hand, the same can be costly if one is required to visit various countries for better knowledge and assessment. A financed Searcher will likely secure a low share or control of the targeted company. It may have some high-level KPI, which may mean that the financed Searcher might try to get whatever company if there are no restrictions by the funders.
