An investment philosophy that reflects our city.

Chicago is the city of broad shoulders, with a tireless work-ethic, a love for its home teams and a polite and humble way about it. It is a city where collaboration is expected and results are rewarded. No one is looking for credit, just success. We call it home. We partner with management teams who strive to build great companies. We collaborate and focus on what we each do best – you run the company while we help you focus on the horizon, watching your back and staying out of the way. We believe that relationships matter. We like to win alongside great people doing exciting things. And we remember to have fun along the way.
