Growth Products & Services

Partnering with category-defining innovators in financial services, consumer, business services and industrial technology

Our Growth Products & Services team seeks to invest in category-leading growth companies and partner with talented executives in four key areas – financial services, consumer, business services and industrial technology – offering deep expertise and resources to support the profitable growth of industry-leading businesses.

Across these sectors, our experience is deep and broad, spanning numerous market shifts, macroeconomic environments and business models. We’ve helped build some of the largest financial services platforms across the U.S. and Europe, worked alongside business services companies disrupting traditional distribution models, supported the rapid expansion of high-profile consumer brands and helped scale innovative global payments providers – and in aggregate have supported more than 100 public offerings, strategic sales, and sponsor-backed M&A exits across these sectors. We believe this perspective allows our team to identify the innovators shaping their markets and actively support their growth as category-defining leaders.
