Style Group is the world’s first Creator-focused boutique investment firm. We seek to create positive economic impact and long-term value for the Social Media Creators we invest in, and the communities in which we operate with the help of an extraordinary team of Creators, flexible capital, and an innate focus on solving complex problems in the fast-paced Social Media world.
Style Group invests in YouTube, TikTok, and other Social Media Creators by providing capital, technology, and support. We are pursuing M&A in the Social Media space to streamline Reach and Engagement while building a pipeline of entertaining content libraries worldwide.
Our private equity strategy offers a combination of financial, management, and intellectual capital to bring lasting value and sustainable growth to our portfolio of Social Media Channels. We set Channels up for success by offering proven best practices and growth capital.
Style Group Social Media Credit solutions are often not available elsewhere in the credit markets and draw upon a range of investment and non-investment grade disciplines including leveraged loans, high-yield bonds, distressed debt, mezzanine lending, rescue financing, etc.
SG Hedge Fund’s overall investment philosophy is to protect and grow investors’ assets through both commingled and custom-tailored investment strategies designed to deliver compelling risk-adjusted returns and mitigate risk. Approximately half of the assets we manage are invested in customized vehicles created to meet client-specific objectives.
