Raleigh, NC – December 5, 2017 SharpVue Capital, LLC, the wealth and asset management affiliate of Medical Mutual Holdings, Inc., today announced the final close of its first private equity investment, SharpVue WI Partners, LP. The partnership, which raised $13 million in commitments, was formed for the sole purpose of making a minority investment in Waste Industries, one of the nation’s largest providers of non-hazardous solid waste collection, transfer, recycling, and disposal services. With this new investment, an affiliate of SharpVue Capital has acquired a non-controlling interest in the Raleigh-based waste company.

As the parent company of SharpVue Capital, Medical Mutual Holdings participated in the investment, alongside a group of leading private equity fund sponsors and institutional investors as well as qualified Medical Mutual members and family offices.

“We’re extremely pleased to have provided qualified individuals access to this type of deal, a co-investment opportunity typically only available to institutional investors,” said Matthew H. Mongia, Managing Director of SharpVue Capital. “This deal demonstrates our commitment to delivering differentiated solutions to our clients across all of our asset management strategies and wealth management services.”

Waste Industries currently operates in seven states within SharpVue Capital’s target geography that are, on average, expected to experience higher population and economic growth than other parts of the country, according to forecasting by Moody’s Analytics. The company also has an experienced management team that has led the organization to consistent financial performance over its more than forty years in business.

The deal represents SharpVue Capital’s flexible approach to pursuing attractive and risk-adjusted returns through investing opportunistically in private companies and complements the firm’s existing real estate strategies and comprehensive wealth management services.
