Investment Strategy

We source differentiated and value-oriented investment opportunities, principally in industries we know well, and leverage expertise through our extensive networks to unlock unique opportunities. Our highly methodical investment approach maximizes upside while minimizing risk. Each potential acquisition is vetted by our thorough diligence process and we create a high-conviction and detailed bridge to earnings growth prior to making any investment. We do not rely on leverage nor multiple expansion for base case returns. We invest across the capital structure, and we are incredibly discerning, meticulous and patient. We utilize a flexible and creative hands-on approach to drive change and generate value by carefully identifying operational improvements and challenges upfront.
