Our Investments

Our goal is to purchase strong stable businesses with great values, great people and great track records. We have no quotas, no minimums, no pressure.

Our investments are long term oriented and we always work to ensure that the employees making things happen, share in the upside of success with our portfolio.

How we choose our investments

People

We believe that it is the people that make a business successful, companies with strong operations and people who are the best at what they do, are at the cornerstone of what we look for.

Values

We know that a team is only as strong as the way people work together and we believe values are the key to that alignment. With strong values in place a business can overcome any challenge and makes success that much more enjoyable

Track Record

We look for businesses who have been successful over the long-term. We would rather pay a premium for a successful track record rather than a company that has not.
