What makes us Evergreen?

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

Where we invest

We seek companies and teams whose motivating principle is to create long term value. We primarily seek to invest in profitable companies with revenue of at least $30 million. We focus on majority investments as part of a platform strategy or in support of existing investments. We also make minority investments in our sectors if they complement our portfolio strategy.
