What Makes Us Different

Accountable Capital

Our unique capital base is more than a commodity: we deploy it responsibly and treat it with intention. We are accountable for each investment, and our capital serves both to generate returns and deliver value for future generations.

Intentional Focus

We invest across the personal care, food and beverage sectors, partnering with teams committed to delivering sustainable growth without taking shortcuts.

Value Beyond Capital

We take a holistic approach to grow companies, providing resources beyond capital to create equity value. We share in the challenges and successes of our partners, rolling up our sleeves alongside teams to compound value as we compound growth.

Our Investment Strategy

Mandate

Our 100-year structure creates strategic partnerships without the constraints of traditional private equity mandates. We provide our partners with an enduring source of capital, liquidity and support that gives them the flexibility to make the best decisions at the right time.

Criteria

We have two primary investment criteria: first, late stage growth equity in profitable companies with at least $30 million in revenue, and second, companies or brands that bring synergies to our existing portfolio with no size constraint.

Aligned Interests

We partner and align interests with leaders who share our ambition to build outstanding, high-performing companies.
