Proterra Investment Partners is an alternative investment manager focused on private equity investments in the natural resource sectors of agriculture, food, and metals and mining. Proterra has offices in Minneapolis, London, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Shanghai, and Sydney.
Proterra launched as a standalone investment advisor and private equity fund manager for the Black River Asset Management private equity funds (the “Funds”) on January 1, 2016. The Funds spun out from Black River Asset Management, a wholly-owned, independently managed subsidiary of Cargill, Inc. Proterra’s investment strategies are influenced by the senior leadership team’s longstanding tenure with Cargill – a global leader in providing food, agriculture, financial, and industrial products and services. Although no longer an owner, Cargill maintains its relationship with Proterra as a committed limited partner to the Funds.
