Culture + Values

PEOPLE

People work with people they like and trust. We will never lose sight of the fact that it’s people who make our firm successful and it’s people who have made the companies we invest in successful.

TRANSPARENCY

If we know, you will know. We believe in radically transparent, honest relationships. We win together with our partners through teamwork, not at one another’s expense. We expect radical transparency within our firm and in our relationships with our partners at the companies in which we invest. Yes, this includes during the transaction process. No surprises – that’s our commitment.

INTEGRITY

We protect our reputation – as individuals and as a firm – in every decision we make and every action that we take. Nothing is more important. We don’t cut corners and we don’t sacrifice long-term success for short-term gains.

EXCELLENCE

We aspire for excellence – as individuals and as a firm – not just as a driver of financial performance, but because we believe there is something intrinsically important in being the best.

MUTUAL RESPECT

We have great respect for the work required to make a company successful and understand the work required to continue a company’s successful legacy.

ACCOUNTABILIY

We hold ourselves accountable. When we invest in a company, we are as accountable to you as you are to us. We don’t live in an ivory tower, observing from above. We contribute and we deliver on our commitments – to the companies we invest in and to one another.
