Calculated risk takers, that is. We live in the real world with real expectations. Whether we are investing for our own account or in partnership with others, we understand that a good opportunity doesn’t sit around forever, and a great deal rarely ever sees the light of day.
But if you’re ever going to invest in anything other than a CD you have to assume some risk. How do we mitigate that risk? By knowing the market. By paying attention and knowing where to make the deep dive for timely accurate information. Your chance of thriving in today’s corporate acquisition market is only as good as your ability to quickly and competently analyze risk and reward – and then act decisively.
We make capital investments in companies that interest us for myriad reasons. Sometimes we inject cash, sometimes we provide management services, sometimes both. Usually we will take one or more board positions, using those positions to reach out to resources the company needs. We have earned a reputation as an investment partner that can quickly identify toxic dynamics and processes, eliminate waste and inefficient sourcing, take remedial action and initiate best practices.
The phrase “risk takers’ lends itself to some funny pictures and rhymes with the other headings in this section. But make no mistake about it...there is no other concept more important to us than risk. We have an entire division devoted to managing and mitigating financial and personal risk for our young friends who are still playing a sport for a living. Heavy financial losses are rarely suffered by people who understand the rewards relative to the risk they’re assuming.
