We take an opportunistic, long term and constructive approach to investments across the capital structure. In many cases we have invested with trusted partners repeatedly and over multiple decades. We invest both on an internal direct basis as well as selectively allocating to outside managers.
We are generally interested in real businesses with proven returns on capital and do not invest in early stage venture or high technology. We view technology as a means to an end (to make a company or investment more efficient or more customer friendly). We relish distressed situations, uncertainty and complexity if worth the effort. We are creative and positive partners. Likewise, character and integrity is essential to us.
We’ve invested in an extremely wide range of asset classes, financial structures and geographies over time; below is a limited selection of some recent investments.
