About Us

A rigorous process focused on success.

Our proprietary methodology is based upon our view of best practices gained from decades of experience in private equity, commercial lending and operational expertise accrued by our diverse management team. Our intensive process affords us a high level of intelligence and control over our investment opportunities and in turn can shape the business plans and exit strategies for our portfolio companies. At its core, we adhere to strategic and confirmatory due diligence with deep, objective analytics that allow us to effectively establish valuation and purchase price/loan pricing. Our thorough process is the foundation of the companies we build.
