List of 3 large US Private Equity Single Family Offices

In the following, we are introducing you to three interesting US-based single family offices from our list that are active in private equity.

1. Duchossois Capital Management, Chicago

Duchossois Capital Management, as part of the Duchossois Group, is responsible for managing and investing the private assets of the Duchossois Family. Richard L. “Dick” Duchossois founded the Duchossois Group in 1983. Before that he worked for the Thrall Car Manufacturing Company and became CEO in 1952. The firm bought the Chamberlain Manufacturing Corp in 1980 where Richard served as a chairman. Then, 1983, the Duchossois Family bought the Thrall Family’s interest and renamed the company to Duchossois Industries Inc., which later was renamed to Duchossois Group. In 2013, Duchossois Capital Management was founded in order to consolidate and coordinate all the family’s investment activities. Their private equity department is oriented on a long term based relationship with all their portfolio companies and is interested in companies related to engineered industrial products, building products, transportation, logistics, rail leasing, value-added distribution, consumer durables, access control and security, healthcare services and technology-enabled-services. Interested firms have to have at least an EBITDA of 10 million U.S. dollars. An exemplary portfolio company is Riverside Rail. The corporation provides creative railcar solutions and is active in leasing, managing and acquiring railcars.

2. Vulcan Capital, Seattle

The company takes care of the private fortune of Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen’s family, who unfortunately died at the age of 65 in 2018. Paul Allen was an American business magnate, researcher, investor, and philanthropist. He co-founded Microsoft alongside with Bill Gates in 1975, which helped spark the microcomputer revolution of the 1970s and 1980s and later became the world’s largest personal computer software company. At the time of this death, his net worth was estimated to be around 20.3 billion U.S. dollars, which are now under the management of Vulcan Capital and his family. Vulcan Capital was founded 2003 and has its headquarters in Seattle with additional offices in Palo Alto and Singapore. The company is focused on generating long-term value appreciation across a portfolio which spans diverse industry sectors and investment asset classes, ranging from early-stage venture investments to public equity value investing, leveraged buyouts, acquisitions, special situations and fixed income. Vulcan Capital Vulcan has no defined limits on size or structure, but generally targets direct equity investments of $10 million to $100 million in the fields of technology, internet, life sciences, as well as select smaller venture investments. One major investment of their recent portfolio is “Off Grid Electric” a leading provider of solar energy services to off-grid residential customers in Sub-Saharan Africa.

3. Equity Group Investments, Chicago

Equity Group Investments serves as the private single family office of Sam Zell, who started to grow his 4.4 billion U.S. dollar fortune while going to college. At that time, he managed a small 15-unit apartment building in return for free room-and-board and was soon managing the owner’s other properties. Later he won a contract with a large student housing developer because of his impressive knowledge about the student’s needs in terms of housing. When he finished his studies in 1966, he was managing over 4,000 apartments and owning 100-200 units outright. In 1968 Sam founded the predecessor of Equity Group Investments together with his partner Robert H. Lurie. Together they went on to grow the small firm into a vast enterprise. Equity group investments was the genesis for the three largest public real estate companies in history: Equity Residential (largest apartment owner in the U.S.), EQ Office (largest office owner in the country) and Equity Lifestyle (owner/operator of manufactured home and resort communities). Today Equity Group Investments’ private equity focus is industry agnostic, but past investments show some preferences for energy, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, transportation, media, and real estate. One recent portfolio company is EagleRidge Energy, a Dallas-based operator focused in the Barnett Shale. The company is engaged in the exploration and production of onshore natural gas properties

    I purchased this database along with the U.S. Real Estate list, both have proved to be very useful and I am very impressed with the amount of data. Customer service was terrific, the team were very helpful and at my request provided me with insight into which lists were most suitable for my research.
