We believe in forming true partnerships with the owners and managers of the companies in which we invest. FPH invests in family and founder-owned businesses as well as businesses with significant management ownership.

We believe our experience and long-term orientation is particularly well suited to the following situations:

  • Owners looking to diversify their wealth or plan for succession through the sale of 20-80% of their business
  • Owners concerned about the legacy of the family business and the well being of their employees
  • Owners interested in bringing on a financial and operating partner in connection with the acquisition of a complementary business
  • Shareholders interested in selling a stake in their business over time through a series of transactions
  • Managers looking for growth capital to enter new markets, make acquisitions or expand product lines

We believe FPH is an attractive partner due to:

  • Our flexible, long-term family capital
  • Our experience in a wide variety of industries
  • Our commitment to preserving and enhancing company cultures
  • Our willingness to invest additional capital in growth initiatives over time
  • Our active, value-added engagement with portfolio companies
  • Our conservative approach to leverage
  • Our consideration of both minority and majority transactions

Our investment decisions are driven by a set of core values:

  • Adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and fair dealing
  • Challenge ourselves and our partners to perform at the highest levels
  • Form true partnerships with like-minded individuals
  • Recognize and reward excellence
