Hands-on Asset Management
We believe that a proactive approach to asset and portfolio management is the optimal complement to a successfully executed investment strategy.

Our in-house industry experts drive our asset management efforts to create a long-term partnership with our portfolio companies, management teams, employees and other stakeholders.
We take pride that the professional quality of our work is unsurpassed across our industry.

Our investment management approach is to employ best industry practices through a sector focus.

We consistently match the best individual to every job, or inclusion on a team, based on a “can-do/roll-up-your-sleeves” culture. We reward flexibility and creativity, and provide our people with opportunities to assume new responsibilities and advance, based on merit, in their professional careers.
