Investment Philosophy

WestView Capital Partners invests equity capital to support outstanding management teams in realizing the strategic, financial and operational objectives of their businesses. We approach these long-term relationships and partnerships with honesty and integrity as a value-added partner.

The cornerstone of our investment philosophy is the collaborative relationship we establish with portfolio company management. Our experience has shown us that motivated and talented management teams are the key to building successful businesses and our actions reflect this very important aspect of private equity investing. Therefore, we do not play a day to day role in the operations of portfolio companies, but leave these business decisions with the proven managers with whom we partner.

Our partnership model is deeply rooted in investing with management teams who have a meaningful equity stake in their businesses, thereby aligning each parties’ interests. As a result of this core aspect of our investment philosophy, we are equally comfortable investing in minority and majority ownership situations.

Acting as advisors to and partners with management, our extensive experience has given us a solid understanding and appreciation for the financial, strategic and operational issues that confront managers of lower middle market companies. We are active board members and are committed to using our years of experience, substantial resources, strong business relationships and strategic insights to help management build a successful company. In particular, our experience, strategic relationships and credibility in the financial community give companies greater access to capital as we work with management to guide companies through mergers, acquisitions and financings.
