General, Administrative & Corporate Solutions

Management & Market Strategy

It’s critically important to understand the size of your markets, the landscapes of competitors, the voice of customers, and the best go-to-market strategies to take advantage of opportunities.  Our PE-tested network of management consultants can give you the commercial due diligence and value creation insights you need.

Property & Casualty Insurance

Your critical assets and your boards of directors need to be protected against unforeseen risks. You also need someone who understands the unique nuances of insuring private equity-backed companies. We know the PE-tested groups who will get you the right coverage to protect you and your stakeholders.

Background Investigations

People are your most important asset.  To get it right, you need to trust, but verify.  For C-suite hires, don’t use an online automated system: hire a group vetted by BluWave that knows where to look to identify potential human capital blind-spots.

Compliance Advisors

Middle market companies often can’t afford to have in-house compliance teams to cover broad regulatory requirements or understand esoteric risks.  Yet it’s still very important to make sure you’re meeting necessary standards.  Outsource this important function to a BluWave-vetted group to minimize risks.

Buy-Side M&A Advisory

In this environment, growth is not optional.  Add-on acquisitions are one of the best way to quickly build scale, add capabilities, and drive growth.  We can connect you with the best-in-class groups who can drive proprietary deal flow for you and your companies.

Government Relations

It’s hard to know what happens behind the curtains in Washington, DC when you’re not inside the Beltway.  However, if you’re investing or operating in regulated industries, you can’t afford to fly blind. A capable government relations consultant can give you an informed perspective.  BluWave can connect you with the groups you need to know.

Interim Executives

Don’t wait for your full-time hire to be made to drive growth and development. Let BluWave connect you with a custom-fit interim executive to jump start your growth and development needs.

Executive Recruiting

You shouldn’t be using a bulge bracket firm for your executive recruiting needs. You’ll get a better result with a PE-tested boutique, where the partner does the work. BluWave can connect you with the right firm that has the  functional role and industry expertise you need.

Temporary Staffing

Whether due to turnover or seasonal fluctuations, temporary staffing is sometimes necessary to keep your company on target. BluWave can quickly provide you with an experienced, temporary staffing firm to bolster your team when you need them.

Case Studies

Quickly Identifying Background Investigation Providers

Business Issue:

A private equity fund client was unhappy with existing background investigations firm due to increase in price and decreases in service.

BluWave Approach:

BluWave connected the private equity firm with multiple providers that were very active in the private equity marketplace, built for the speed of a private equity process, and priced to serve lower middle market funds.

Client Benefit/ROI:  

The private equity fund knew that it was receiving poor outcomes from a relatively low priority, but potentially high risk part of its diligence workstream.  However, it did not have the time or resources to prioritize identifying alternatives.  BluWave provided the PE fund substantial leverage by promptly identifying alternatives, freeing the PE team to focus on higher priority and more strategic initiatives.

Sourced Market Consulting Firm that had Unique Market Insights

Business Issue:

A PE-backed company was looking to invest in a niche end market and needed a market consulting firm to perform due diligence on the prospective target.

BluWave Approach:

BluWave connected the company with a PE-tested, niche market due diligence firm that possessed unique knowledge of the targets end markets and its inherent opportunities and risks.

Client Benefit/ROI: 

The customer didn’t know that such a group with specific industry experience existed. The PE fund and the operating company learned inherent risks that were not previously discovered or understood.  They opted to not pursue the acquisition and leverage their new insights to pursue an organic growth strategy.
