We strive to create value by investing in great businesses where our capital, strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive transformation and realize the company’s potential. The resulting improvements in growth and global competitiveness benefit not only investors, but also workers, communities and all stakeholders.
Our investment approach is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the catalysts for increased value. We engage only in friendly transactions and work with talented managements to achieve exceptional performance. Our specialized Portfolio Operations Group helps to maximize value by driving improved operational results. Corporate partnerships, in which we invest alongside major corporations, are also a signature element of our private equity business.
We are patient investors, committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for our businesses and our investors. Recognizing this, the majority of our limited partners have entrusted us with ever-increasing levels of assets.
