How We're Different
Fenway Partners is an uncommon investment company. We believe that our passion for building great businesses, proven capabilities as a valued-added partner, patience in working through complex situations, ability to accommodate the non-price considerations often important to families, entrepreneurs and other sellers, and use of reasonable financial leverage to return value to shareholders while ensuring portfolio companies have the resources they need to invest for growth make us a buyer of choice.
Once involved as a long-term investor in our portfolio companies we focus on taking businesses to the next level of performance. We work to create an atmosphere in which management can achieve maximum equity returns by increasing the velocity of value creation within the business.
Our style is to be active, involved and engaged partners:
- We work to foster teamwork and to take full advantage of the combined knowledge and experience of our team and that of the managers of our portfolio companies to improve operations and strive to generate superior returns
- We believe in open communication and transparency, aligned financial interests, and a focus on process, people and accountability
- Our goal is to ensure that working with Fenway Partners is personally and financially rewarding and that the people who make success happen are rewarded for their contributions
