How We Help our Portfolio Companies

We have learned firsthand that building generational companies is very difficult. It is a journey defined by grit and perseverance.

It doesn’t happen overnight. And it never happens in a straight line. While we actively support our portfolio founders and CEOs, we do so with shared empathy that the scaling journey is everything but easy.

Here are the primary ways we support our portfolio:

We invest between $75-300 million per portfolio company with the intention of building long-term value.

Our evergreen capital structure allows us to invest without the limitations of a fund life. It allows us to support growth companies through the highs and lows of their scaling journey.

Scaling culture is one of the most difficult and never-ending challenges for growth companies. As long-term investors, it’s one of the areas we help our portfolio companies most.

Our Operating Partners and Investment Team typically support our portfolio companies with a range of people and culture challenges, from board and leadership recruitment to remuneration plans.

One of the benefits of a highly concentrated portfolio is our capacity to partner with our portfolio companies on their scaling journey.

We’re active, but not activists.

Portfolio Companies receive active support from our Investment Team and Operating Partners with:

  • Strategy development
  • Best practice data benchmarking
  • Remuneration strategy
  • Capital structure advice
  • Transition to the public markets
  • Investor relations
