We apply a partnership approach to everything we do, from our Roundtable investment structure to our interactions with management teams. Our style will not fit everyone, but the principals by which we aim to operate (and which we look for in others) are centered upon:
Reliability: Say what we mean and do what we promise.
Transparency: Foster an open exchange of information and apply best practices in reporting.
Alignment: Seek economic alignment among stakeholders where ever possible.
Fairness: Treat everyone using the same standards.
Accountability: Take ownership of problems and encourage others to do the same.
We believe we make good partners. In that spirit, we encourage the owners and managers of businesses with whom we are discussing a possible investment to contact any of our portfolio company CEOs or fellow investors to get a sense of how we operate.
