Curiosity
is the key
to discovery

Exigent is unique in the world of investment management. Since our founding over a decade ago we’ve marched to the beat of our own drum. We are a boutique investment house armed with a cohesive world-view, access to compelling opportunities and driven by an innate curiosity to discover hidden potential.
Wherever it may lie.

Three partners. Three complimentary personalities, skill sets, perspectives and experience. Combined, it is the formula that allows Exigent to thrive.

Eric Davis

Partner

Eric has been the steady hand guiding our firm since its founding, adroitly adapting Exigent's platform to harness new opportunities. He has twenty-five years of professional experience in legal, structuring and operations, having started his career at the New York office of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker. While he can't quite play ball like his college days Eric is a recent gold medal winner at the Maccabiah games, and enjoys history and exploring the Land of Israel.
