We are growth investors focused on the U.S. middle market primarily investing in the business services, healthcare, general industrial, and technology and telecommunications sectors.

Experience

The Court Square team is one of the most experienced teams in private equity having completed more than 210 investments over the past three decades. Together we have developed a disciplined investment process and sound, time-tested investment judgment. We leverage our extensive network of current and former portfolio company executives, board members, and investment partners to drive our unique sourcing model and to serve as a valuable resource for our portfolio companies.

Partnership

The Firm is committed to partnering with and aligning incentives between our investors, managers, and investment teams to produce long-term, sustainable value. We collaborate with our managers in seeking to identify key value creation opportunities and to ensure our companies have the resources to aggressively pursue these opportunities. We maintain a longstanding tradition of accountability with over $830 million of personal commitments from our investment team.

Value Creation

Our investment success is based on the disciplined application of our established methodology for value enhancement in the middle market. With patience, expertise, and proper resources, we have helped hundreds of businesses grow and exploit unrealized value opportunities. Our Resource Partners work closely with executive teams on an as needed basis to identify and evaluate outside resources and assist in the execution of these specific performance improvement projects.

Discipline

Court Square focuses on sectors and business models where we have deep domain expertise and investment experience.  Over many years, we have remained disciplined and on strategy, letting investment fads come and go. We maintain a fact-based, data-driven decision making process that includes a rigorous risk and reward assessment and supports strict portfolio and risk management.
