PROPRIETARY INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
BONART invests the private capital of the Barack Family using expertise and knowhow developed over 40 years in the capital markets.
We have developed a proprietary strategy and several internal instruments to identify opportunities and managers across various factors and processes.
Bonart started as a single-family office re-structured to achieve investment opportunities by implementing new business models and innovative deal structuring. We dedicated much time to explore the ingredients of success upon which we run Bonart’s Proprietary Investment Strategies Division. The key learnings are built on the legacy of Bonart:
Investing family capital requires enormous discipline, a long-term vision, commitment, clarity, and due regard for everyone’s expectations
We are now a team of committed financial entrepreneurs who share the same values and views of our Family Office, based on the belief that the investment community must adapt to the new reality in which individuals and markets operate
Transparency and honesty are our basic pillars
This division provides financing resources and expertise to founders and existing capital management teams. We maintain an extensive network of investors, family offices, and institutions, and believe in selective matchmaking. Our private investments are made in multiple methods, from in-house funds to opportunities of our clients by co-investments of noted investors.
The team combines both advisory and actual investment experts, providing us with insights that many other pure-play advisory firms lack. We understand the longer-term issues that may occur outside of a specific piece of execution work, and we can advise on preventing or planning such potential problems accordingly.
A large part of our work is for clients with whom we have a multi-year relationship, where we have advised and provided guidance through multiple stages of their varying corporate strategic issues.
Key principles that drive our investment decisions:
Conviction: Our portfolio reflects the strongest beliefs of our family in terms of allocation, theme, sector, and instrument selection.
Fundamentals: Our investment philosophy balances a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative analysis.
Independent: We do not follow the market consensus if we believe there is a disconnection between the fundamentals and the market's expectations.

The Circle Of Wealth Creation
Investing with Partners into New Age Global Convictions
Our deep sense of responsibility and unwavering commitment to quality is rooted in our family for generations. We are creating a new standard in investment management, continually innovating to inspire and motivate partners in new ways.
Our close club of investors represent Family Offices, Asset Managers and Financial Funds, joining us only by invitation.
We would always invest with our partners with whom trust is creating along a life cycle walk to increase and enhance the touch-points of engagements
We take a comprehensive view regarding each investment to have (or create) the right tax and optimal legal flexibility.
We provide advice with internal and external professional experts to make sure that none of us would meet surprises at any stage of the investment.

Elevator Fund invests in early-stage Israeli talent and acts as a full strategic, operational, and financial partner. It has developed a method for early-stage startup funding focusing on accelerating market validation, a process that typically takes 18 months.
Elevator makes small investments of less than $1 million in companies it believes have the potential to reach market readiness in under five months. With Elevator acting as their operational partner, companies can generate revenue before they're ready to raise additional funds.
After a company has outgrown the seed stage, Elevator can then invest additional capital and will often syndicate a company's seed round. Elevator takes 8%–15% for its initial investment and product validation, and the market prices the value of the additional financing.
Dr. Boaz Barack is the Chairman of Elevator.
