SALT LAKE CITY, May 6, 2022
Assure Analytics announces the release of the 1st Annual State of the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) report.

Assure Analytics is the business intelligence unit of Assure, the leading provider of SPVs. Assure Analytics gathers millions of data points across private markets and interprets them to create relevant insights unavailable elsewhere. This unique knowledge enables clients and the global financial industry make better investment decisions.


The concept of SPVs for private capital raises has been around for a long time. However, they have been expensive and time consuming to use. In 2013, Assure changed that by streamlining the process and lowering the costs for creating, administering and closing SPVs, meaning that more deal organizers and investors could access them.

Some notable findings from the report include:

  • The median SPV size is $422,000
  • 70% of SPVs raise under $1 million
  • 6% of SPVs raise more than $5 million
  • The median U.S.-led SPV raise was $103,000 with an average of $20,000 per investor
  • The median non-U.S.-led SPV was $325,000 with an average of $38,000 per investor
  • Over the past six years, the median SPV size has almost doubled while the average investment has more than tripled
  • Less than 10% of SPVs collect a management fee
  • California organizers are most likely to charge a management fee
  • International organizers are least likely to charge a management fee
  • SPVs put capital to work and make investor distributions fast. The time to 1st investment is 43 days, and the time to 1st distribution is 2.3 years. Again, much faster than is typical in the private markets.
