Playing a vital role in helping companies realize their growth potential, we uncover value by identifying great companies and enhancing their performance by providing patient capital and operating support to strong management teams. Our approach helps our portfolio companies grow core businesses, launch new initiatives, make transformative acquisitions and upgrade technologies and systems to support their long-term strategy.
We provide more than just capital. We seek to make the companies we invest in stronger through a bottoms-up strategy of transformation. Crucially, we bring the expertise of our Core Management Team to provide strategic guidance on a variety of operational improvements, including revenue growth, procurement, leadership development, lean six-sigma process and IT optimization, energy sustainability and team building.
We strive to create value by investing in great businesses where our capital, strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive transformation that accelerates a company’s growth potential. In addition to greatly benefiting our investors, the improvements in growth and global competitiveness benefit workers, communities and other stakeholders.
We are patient investors who practice the art of the long view, and are committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for our businesses and our investors.
