First Capital Partners, based in Omaha, provides junior capital solutions to privately owned companies in the lower middle market. After successfully investing as a wholly owned subsidiary of First National of Nebraska for five years and proving out its business model, First Capital Partners was ready to spin out and raise their first Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) fund in 2011. After launching its inaugural fund, the firm recognized that they needed outside expertise to guide them through the process of administering the fund as well as meeting the reporting requirements of the Small Business Administration (SBA).

“Working with PEF has allowed me to trust that I can hand over fund administration to someone who knows exactly what to do,” explained Andy Kemp, Managing Director of First Capital Partners. “They’re taking care of everything and delivering back to me comprehensive financial reports and SBA reporting, so I don’t have to worry about the day-to-day.”

PEF is nationally recognized as one of the top boutique fund administrators and back-office specialists for both General Partners and Limited Partners in the alternative asset space.  PEF’s services include partnership accounting, financial reporting, capital call and distribution processing, investor capital account maintenance, audit and tax return support and coordinated fulfillment of all investor deliverables.

“PEF supports our clients with a complete range of services, best-in-class technologies and industry expertise,” said Beth Manzi, Chief Operating Officer of PEF Services.  “We are delighted to serve First Capital Partners as a client since joining PEF in 2011.  We look forward to helping them to continue to achieve greater efficiencies while they focus on deal origination and investment management.”

This case study is one of ten published case studies highlighting client growth and success supported by PEF’s fund administration services.
