our firm

Our mission is to generate superior returns by making investments in great businesses and helping existing management better them.

Family Origins

We trace our origins to a family office founded in 1947. In 1994, we formalized our private equity investment activities and opened them to outside investors seeking attractive risk-adjusted rates of return with reduced risk of capital loss.

Values-Based Investing

Our investment philosophy is focused on partnership with great companies and their existing management teams, using conservative capital structures to enable stability, growth, and flexibility.
