The Great White Shark Opportunity Fund (GWSOF) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Greg Norman Company – golfing legend Greg Norman’s private-conglomerate which he founded in the early 90’s and still serves today as Chairman & CEO. GWSOF was launched in 2013 as a result of the global financial crises and a dislocation in the traditional lending markets. The industry agnostic platform is an alternative lending and flexible capital source to small and mid-cap growth oriented companies via an asset based debt lending structure.
The Fund investments are structured as senior secured debt with warrants, equity securities or other upside components. The primary purpose of the debt instrument is to provide a consistent monthly fixed income return while also providing downside protection through a senior secured interest. The Fund seeks to build a broad based and diversified pool of investments in growth oriented companies.
