A Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) allows investors to quickly pool capital and invest in a specific startup or exciting new business venture. However, there are many complexities involved in SPV management, and you must ensure that your SPV structure properly aligns with your investment goals.

That’s where SPV management services come in. Below, we explain how SPV management services work and set out five ways they can help deal organizers and investors successfully set up and manage multiple SPVs.

SPV Management Services

SPV service providers offer more than just administrative support. At Assure, we provide a range of critical services for SPV management including:

    • SPV setup
    • Fund Documents Creation
    • Investor Onboarding
    • Banking
    • Regulatory support
    • Tax preparation
    • Deal management
    • Performance overview

Investors and managers can choose the SPV solution tier that suits their budget and investment needs, and there’s always flexibility to move between products as goals change.

SPV Management Fee

SPV administration fees vary; however, they’re usually a small percentage of the total investment. The SPV bears the cost of organizational expenses such as entity formation costs like registrations and blue sky fees.

At Assure, we keep SPV management fees as low as possible, starting at a $4,000 flat fee. The fees for SPV administration are usually distributed amongst the investors at closing unless you choose take on those expenses as part of your responsibility as the deal organizer . Most of our organizers do not charge any fee to the investors in the SPV, but take a carry percentage of potential return from the investment. The entity formation process on Glassboard, with supporting fund document templates guide you through structuring the deal and setting it up to take carry. Many organizers end up not paying any out-of-pocket fees or investing their own capital, but still participate in the return on the investment.

We offer a highly competitive pricing structure – contact us to discuss your SPV and learn more about our suite of services.
