Vivaris Capital, LLC 506(c) Offering Platform


Vivaris Capital, LLC (“Vivaris Capital,” the “Company,” or the “Fund”) was formed for the purpose of delivering superior alternative asset returns while mitigating downside risk by using investment grade securities and making opportunistic investments. Vivaris Capital’s investment strategies are targeted at middle-market, well-established companies and late-stage venture capital technology companies at an inflection point where additional capital and revitalized management are capable of spurring serious economic expansion (“Growth Equity”), as well as under-utilized or non-performing residential and commercial real estate developments where proper renovations and marketing can lead to serious value appreciation (“Real Estate”).

Investor capital will be allocated into several diversified investment grade portfolios of securities (“Securities Portfolios”). These investment portfolios are limited access portfolios with top tier investment entities. Investor funds are allocated based on portfolio performance and the prospect of high alpha returns. The Fund investment focus is on dividend growth and low beta portfolios.

“When we look to invest or acquire a business, I always try to answer three fundamental questions: what is the margin of safety, what can we do to make this business strategically important, and how fast can we return capital to investors,”

— J. Christopher Mizer – Managing Partner —

Vivaris Capital, LLC 506(c) Offering Platform


The Securities Portfolios held by Vivaris Capital will be collateralized and the proceeds will be used to make opportunistic investments in alternative assets categorized as late-stage venture firms to mature businesses looking for capital to expand or restructure operations, finance an acquisition, or enter a new market (Growth Equity) and suitable properties ranging from land development to value-added remodels and repositioning for both large scale residential and commercial opportunities (Real Estate).

Proceeds from the sale or refinancing of the alternative assets will be used to cover the accrued interest of the credit line against the Securities Portfolios. Investors will have the opportunity for capital gains from both the Securities Portfolios as well as the Growth Equity and Real Estate alternative assets.

The Securities Portfolios appreciation will serve as downside protection for the alternative asset investments. The Fund’s goal in the event of severe losses on the alternative asset investments is to be able to return at a minimum the investors’ initial principal investment. Target returns as a whole for the Securities Portfolios should be able to cover all accrued interest in relation to the credit line as well as offset any significant losses from the alternative asset investments in the event of a catastrophic failure by the investment, with the intention of protecting the investors’ initial principal.

"The combination of our principal protection plan and upside potential of investment appreciation, makes Vivaris one of the best investment strategies available."
