We believe in the following investment principles:
- Invest in people we trust: we strive to conduct our business at all times with honesty and integrity, and expect the same of our partners.
- Invest where our experience matters: when both capital and operating expertise are required to optimize results, we can partner with management to build businesses that are equipped for long-term success.
- Invest in businesses we understand: we do not take research, development or technology risks with products that are core to financial performance.
- Use leverage prudently: debt is essential to an efficient capital structure but we avoid excessive leverage.
