Innovative fee structure delivers alignment and experienced team delivers access
Newport, RI, August 24, 2022 – Fairway Capital Management is proud to announce that it has selected Havener Capital Partners as its marketing team. This partnership is an exciting step for Fairway, advancing its mission to provide quality returns and excellent customer service.
“I think we have an innovative structure that helps ensure…the appropriate incentives and maximizes the likelihood that we will deliver great results for our clients,” says Kevin Callahan, Founding Partner at Fairway. “Havener is the right partner to help us find our next investors and expand access to quality private equity and venture capital investments through our new registered fund.”
The Fairway Private Equity & Venture Capital Opportunities Fund is a registered investment vehicle designed to provide investors with exposure to private equity and venture capital investments through primary, secondary, and co-investment strategies that are typically available only to large institutional investors.
This news comes in the wake of the successful completion of the investment period of Fairway’s first venture capital fund, managed by members of the Fairway team who have worked together for over 15 years. The team has decade-long relationships with many of the top venture capital investors.
On the marketing front, Havener will be assisting Fairway with creating an expanded digital marketing campaign. The structure and investment opportunities at Fairway are hallmarks of the firm’s philosophy, and Havener will help its founders share their unique offering with a broader audience. Financial advisors will now be able to access the company’s market insights in a variety of ways, including social media. At the same time, Havener’s sales team will be focused on connecting Fairway Capital with RIAs and family office investors to the firm’s industry-changing offerings.
Havener Capital Partners founder and CEO, Stacy Havener, said the partnership extends her firm’s mission connecting innovative boutiques with the early-adopter RIA community that embraces them:
“At Havener, we serve two markets: boutique asset managers who are bringing something new to the table, and RIAs who demand more than cookie-cutter solutions for their clients. Fairway Capital Management’s access to top tier venture capital opportunities and the team’s commitment to alignment with investors make the firm a natural partner for the Havener mission.”

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the Fund before investing. This and other important information about the Fund is contained in the Prospectus, which can be obtained at www.fairwaycapm.com. The Prospectus should be read carefully before investing.

Important Risk Information
The Fund has been organized as a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company and designed primarily for long-term investors. Shares are speculative and illiquid securities involving substantial risk of loss. Investment in the Fund is not suitable for all investors. An investor should not invest in the Fund if the investor needs a liquid investment. Shares are not listed on any securities exchange and it is not anticipated that a secondary market for shares will develop. Shares are subject to substantial restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under the Agreement and Declaration of Trust. Although the Fund may offer to repurchase Shares from time to time, Shares will not be redeemable at a Shareholder’s option nor will they be exchangeable for shares of any other fund. As a result, an investor may not be able to sell or otherwise liquidate his or her Shares. Shares are appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment and for whom an investment in the Fund does not constitute a complete investment program.
The Fund is a “non-diversified” management investment company. Thus, there are no percentage limitations imposed by the 1940 Act on the Fund’s assets that may be invested, directly or indirectly, in the securities of any one issuer. Consequently, if one or more Fund Investments are allocated a relatively large percentage of the Fund’s assets, losses suffered by such Fund Investments could result in a higher reduction in the Fund’s capital than if such capital had been more proportionately allocated among a larger number of investments.
The Fund is new and has no operating history.
The Fund Investments will include direct and indirect investments in various companies, ventures and businesses (“Portfolio Companies”). This may include Portfolio Companies in the early phases of development, which can be highly risky due to the lack of a significant operating history, fully developed product lines, experienced management, or a proven market for their products. The Fund Investments may also include Portfolio Companies that are in a state of distress or which have a poor record, and which are undergoing restructuring or changes in management, and there can be no assurances that such restructuring or changes will be successful. The management of such Portfolio Companies may depend on one or two key individuals, and the loss of the services of any of such individuals may adversely affect the performance of such Portfolio Companies. Some or all of the Portfolio Fund Managers (subject to applicable law) and the Fund may use options, swaps, futures contracts, forward agreements and other derivatives contracts. Transactions in derivative instruments present risks arising from the use of leverage (which increases the magnitude of losses), volatility, the possibility of default by a counterparty, and illiquidity. Use of derivative instruments for hedging or speculative purposes by the Fund or the Portfolio Fund Managers could present significant risks, including the risk of losses in excess of the amounts invested.
As an indirect investor in the Portfolio Funds managed by Portfolio Fund Managers that are not registered as investment advisers, the Fund will not have the benefit of certain of the protections of the Advisers Act. The securities of the Portfolio Funds in which the Fund invests or plans to invest will generally be illiquid. The Adviser does not control the investments or operations of the Portfolio Funds. A Portfolio Fund Manager may employ investment strategies that differ from its past practices and are not fully disclosed to the Adviser and that involve risks that are not anticipated by the Adviser.
In view of the risks noted above, the Fund should be considered a speculative investment and prospective investors should invest in the Fund only if they can sustain a complete loss of their investment. No guarantee or representation is made that the investment strategy of the Fund will be successful, that the various Portfolio Funds or Co-Investments selected will produce positive returns, or that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. Please see the Prospectus for additional risk information.
