Flexible Capital

We tailor investments to fit the needs of our partners and their companies.

Our Businesses

We provide flexible capital to entrepreneur‑owned businesses.

Our flexible investment approach is valued and desirable for companies that do not fit into the restrictive focus of single‑product private equity, mezzanine, or senior debt providers. Our investment set is expanded to include growth capital, minority investments, leveraged buyouts, and recapitalizations. By investing in opportunities up and down the capital structure, we tailor our investments to fit the unique wants and needs of our partners in order to help them achieve their ultimate goals.
