Dry Powder: The Private Equity Podcast
Over the past few years, Ian Charles, managing partner of Arctos Sports Partners, has been buying minority stakes in sports franchises across North America and Europe.
It may sound like a somewhat exotic investment strategy, but Ian has a knack for spotting nonobvious opportunities with tremendous upside.
“About half of our deals, to date, have been growth capital opportunities in partnership with some of the most innovative owners in all of sports,” Ian says. “Now that we have this market position as the partner of choice for owners that want to grow, they are engaging with our team around the topics that matter most to them.”
Today on Dry Powder, Ian takes us inside the world of sports investing. What you’re about to hear is a master class in sector specialization, advanced analytics, and value creation.
