Creative capital.
Speed and certainty.

We are backed by private capital, so we work outside the constraints of funds comprised primarily of other people’s money. We have no set time horizons to invest or monetize. Each investment decision we make for an asset is made solely based on value creation. We have the freedom to work across the capital structure, debt or equity, private or public — and we are always looking for great long-term investments.

At the same time, we act swiftly. Our bureaucratic-free structure facilitates quick decisions and execution, and enables us to be highly nimble. Moreover, we do what we say we’re going to do.

Simplifying the complex.

From balance sheet and business model restructurings to tax-efficient structures, turnarounds, M&A and failed mergers — we surround an asset with our various areas of expertise to maximize its potential and remove obstacles to its growth. This 360-degree approach promotes innovative solutions and redefines the potential for each investment.
