We broke the mould. We are different. We are pure private equity. We are focused on delivering compelling returns while acutely managing risk. We provide a perpetual investment program that harnesses the power of compounding. We run lean on lower fees. We are transparent, experienced and collaborative. We deeply value integrity and humility. We earn and respect trust in us. We are private equity redefined.

For our investors (Canadian high net worth individuals, family offices and smaller institutional investors), we are a turnkey private equity investment solution that provides indirect equity ownership of a diversified portfolio of North American private companies, using top performing fund managers. We find and access the best funds. We do the heavy lifting around portfolio construction to help investors stay fully invested in an asset class and targeted strategy that can generate compelling returns.
For the underlying funds that we invest in, we are an institutional investor that brings a capital commitment to the table, along with access to our growing LP base of successful Canadian business owners, operators and investors. We seek to establish long-term relationships with select top performing fund managers and increase our commitments over time as Snowline’s perpetual fund grows from investment performance and recycling. We are also flexible, in that although we currently aim to make $3-5M commitments to each underlying fund, we are content to adjust our role in oversubscribed scenarios (i.e. $1-2M toeholds that do not materially impact allocations).
Warren is the Managing Director and founder of Snowline and is responsible for leading and managing the firm. Warren began his private equity career in 2007 at Export Development Canada, where he helped source, execute and manage private equity fund investments globally for a multi-billion-dollar portfolio. In 2015, Warren established and started to build Snowline, with the plan to deliver an institutional-quality investment program tailored for high net worth individuals, family offices, and smaller institutional investors. Warren’s focus on investing in top performing fund managers and connecting with new families/investors is complemented by the fund administration (back office) services and enhancement to governance provided by Horseshoe Fund Services.

We acknowledge their generosity to many causes and are happy to have Snowline Capital play a small part in supporting the organizations and non-profits that are important to them.
