Our Investment Criteria

We invest in businesses that operate across the consumer industry, applying our deep experience, network, and resources, which have been built over decades, to provide companies with more than just capital. We are committed to identifying businesses where we can add tangible value, and founders with whom we have alignment and trust.

As a testament to our belief in the importance of backing strong management teams and alignment as partners, we invest in both minority and majority positions.

Our focus on capitalizing businesses for operational flexibility and strong growth is evident through our conservative approach to leverage.
