    Our Principles

    We have a long-term view of a company’s performance. Our general investment horizon is five to seven years, sometimes longer. We drive our investment returns by helping our partners grow, not by financial engineering or utilizing excessive amounts of debt to fund acquisitions. We add value, not just capital. Our collaborative approach, consumer expertise, proprietary tools, and extensive relationships help our partners build high-growth, best in class brands.
