The portfolio company later sold the majority of its assets to a public company, RPX Corporation. Altitude generated 26% net internal rates of return for its investors.* Prior to Altitude, Mr. Kramer served as a Managing Director for Fortress Investment Group’s Drawbridge Special Opportunities Fund, where he specialized in litigation claims and other illiquid eclectic investments.

One of our objectives is to expose Off Road partners to industries and asset classes to which most family offices and institutions are not privy. We believe such niche opportunities can provide attractive returns without stock market volatility and high correlation to traditional asset classes. We are prepared to take intelligent calculated risks and adopt “out of the box thinking.” From years of experience we have learned that impressive returns can be generated by focusing on smaller niche assets that are difficult to source, diligence, and structure. We believe that illiquidity can be an alpha-generative asset which many in the investment world simply cannot exploit because of structural impediments and asset-liability matching hurdles.
Simply, we are “Off Road” investors that have unstinting conviction in the idea that through a vigorous search process we attempt to find uncommon mispriced assets with upside optionality by partnering with best-in-class and ethical operators, asset managers, and industry specialists.
Off Road Capital Management sits at the nexus between those in search of differentiated investments and those with unique business models in need of flexible capital.
Off Road’s investor-base includes substantial family offices, investing institutions, and household name high-net-worth individuals. Our sophisticated and well-capitalized investor base affords us the ability to execute on “co-investment” opportunities of significant scale and of atypical nature.
Off Road is a solution for niche businesses and asset classes in need of strategic and creative capital to permit growth.
