process

A rigorous and proven process for success.

Our proprietary methodology was developed based on best practices from private equity, commercial lending and operational experience accrued by our diverse management team. It affords us maximum intelligence and control over our investment opportunities and then shapes our work plan and exit strategy, when applicable, for our portfolio companies. At its core is strategic and confirmatory due diligence with deep, objective analytics to establish valuation and purchase price/loan pricing. We’re confident our thorough process is the foundation of the portfolios we build.
