A proven approach

Our Strategy

Experts at creating value in the middle market

For us, investing is about partnership. We have spent our careers investing in the middle market, working closely with family owners, founders and management teams. We apply our capital and experience to help management teams take their business to the next level, faster. If you are thinking about any of the following, we should talk:

  • Entrepreneur or family succession
  • Recapitalizations
  • Corporate carve-outs
  • Management buyouts

Informed, disciplined, collaborative

Strong alignment between investment and management goals is central to our approach from day one. This is the foundation of collaborative, productive relationships with executive teams that help them turn solid businesses into great ones.

We bring value to the table through a thoughtful mix of industry best practices and market analytics, M&A expertise and operational perspective, financial acumen and disciplined execution.


A culture of values

We come to work each day to build great businesses by establishing close partnerships, founded on respect and integrity, to consistently deliver above-market returns on invested capital.

That is the what.” It’s the how” that sets TorQuest apart.

How we work is driven by culture. Ours is defined by a set of shared values that makes building reputations and relationships a priority equal to generating returns. Those values:


We believe in the importance of out-of-the-box thinking; of developing solutions in an entrepreneurial—smart, agile and decisive—manner.


We believe in doing the right thing in all decisions; in building trust and respect by always doing what we say we’ll do.


We believe in the importance of aligning our goals with those of our business partners; in sharing a commitment to bettering the whole.


We believe in respecting others’ opinions; in acting absent of ego.


We believe in being accountable to the highest standards of performance; in a tenacious pursuit of great results.


We believe in using logic and analytical rigour to make sound decisions consistent with strategy; in following proven processes to carefully manage risk.
