Seasoned private equity team with significant investing and operating experience
Our Partners have 150 years of collective work experience including investing in, building and managing businesses and serving as portfolio managers, CEOs, CFOs, COOs, consultants, advisors, strategists and board members. Our relationship network allows us to source opportunities and convene outstanding talent to our portfolio companies.
Throughout our careers we have reviewed hundreds of investment opportunities and deployed ~$5B of capital. We have the perspective and judgement to make and manage investments that can create attractive returns for our investors.
Research-driven, tested and proven investment process
We are research-oriented, thematic investors with the flexibility, experience and preparation to be opportunistic. Our investment process has been developed over decades of private equity, operating and consulting experience across business cycles and company stages. It reflects our learnings from both our successes as well as our failures.
Active ownership approach to private equity
We believe as much alpha can be created through ownership as through investment selection. Every portfolio company works with a dedicated team at Long Arc to develop and execute an “Ownership Plan” – our roadmap to grow the business.
Our approach with companies is to improve their odds of success by bringing to bear talent, experience and expertise from our team. This approach appeals to entrepreneurs and management teams seeking a like-minded, value-add investor.
Long Arc strives for excellence through a culture of curiosity, collaboration, transparency and accountability. Correspondingly, Long Arc has developed a “one firm, one portfolio” approach to our business.
All Partners are involved in our portfolio companies when and as needed, meaning our businesses benefit from the full suite of talent available at the firm. Incentives have been set to achieve alignment and ensure employees operate as a unified team.
