We pursue change-intensive opportunities in the financial services sector, including businesses that are undercapitalized or structurally unsustainable, scalable platforms in fragmented industries poised for strong cash flow generation and growth, or misunderstood and/or undervalued balance sheets. We actively seek opportunities to partner with established businesses in order to unlock value, and also have experience working with entrepreneurs cultivating new platforms in evolving marketplaces. Our activity focuses on a variety of sub-sectors including insurance, asset management and specialty finance.
“Choosing the right capital partner for our consolidation strategy was one of the most critical decisions in founding Williston Financial Group. Golden Gate Capital’s deep domain knowledge, commitment to creating an extremely high quality platform, and steadfast support for the management team were all instrumental to building what is now a successful, scale enterprise.”
