Building and growing great companies around the world

 

We play a vital role in helping companies realize their growth potential. We uncover and unlock value by identifying great companies with untapped potential and enhancing their performance.

We invest across industries in both established and growth-oriented businesses across the globe.

Our investment approach is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the catalysts for increased value. We engage only in friendly transactions and work with talented management teams to achieve positive results.

We strive to create value by investing in great businesses where our capital, strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive transformation.

When we partner with a business, we focus on building it to last. Our staying power, drawn from the scale and breadth of the platform we’ve grown over the years, helps our companies withstand market cycles and succeed for the long term.
