We seek to invest in the best growth companies worldwide, to be a valued and trusted partner to entrepreneurs and executives, and to deliver superior returns to our investors.
Integrity. We are honest, straightforward and accountable. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of ethical and moral conduct. We promote intellectual integrity and practice it rigorously when assessing investment opportunities and evaluating results. Our reputation for outstanding returns produced honorably is our most valuable asset.
Performance. We are satisfied only when we perform at the highest levels of our industry. In order to do so, our firm must be a meritocracy in which each team member contributes to our success.
We value leadership, initiative, creativity and courage. We ask of others only what we demand of ourselves.
Like the business leaders with whom we partner, we have a passion for entrepreneurship. We behave like owners, take calculated risks and work for the best interests of the firm, not the individual.
Human capital development. Our success is determined by the quality of our people and the strength of our team. We are responsible for recruiting, developing and retaining the most talented individuals in our industry. We value our alumni as friends of the firm and take pride in their accomplishments.
Teamwork. We encourage collaboration and camaraderie among our people. We seek to create an environment in which our colleagues can excel, but not at the expense of others at the firm. We require respectful and professional behavior from all of our team members.
Toughness and tenacity. We believe that there is no substitute for hard work. No one ever outhustles us.
We have the privilege to serve the investors who entrust us with their capital and the entrepreneurs who select us as their partner.
