WE ARE A SINGLE-FAMILY OFFICE

 
 

OUR HISTORY

LEADING GREAT COMPANIES

Tricor Pacific Capital was established in 1996 as a private equity firm investing both our own and institutional funds in mid-market companies across North America.  Under the leadership of Rod Senft, Tricor Pacific Capital managed four separate funds, with total committed capital of $1.2 billion. During a 20-year period, Rod and his partners successfully acquired, built and sold a meaningful number of companies across a broad spectrum of the middle-market. Along the way we have built a strong reputation in Western Canada and the US for working with founders and management teams to continue their legacy of building great companies.

 

Today, Tricor Pacific Capital has evolved into a single-family office that invests its own capital inter-generationally in a portfolio of diversified food and industrial businesses, along with real estate and land development projects.

WHY PARTNER WITH US

WE HAVE A LONG-TERM INVESTMENT HORIZON

We have an invest & hold mentality on all transactions, and seek to build additional value over the very long term. As a single-family office we invest our own capital in companies we can be proud of. This enables faster transaction timelines and a more efficient decision-making process, while also ensuring that our interests are aligned with those of our partners, particularly founders or our management partners.

WE OFFER FLEXIBILITY IN TRANSACTION STRUCTURING

 

We have the willingness and ability to tailor transactions to meet the needs of individual sellers. Through many years of experience across numerous industries and transactions we have learned that every business is unique. We understand that flexibility and alignment of interests are important in ensuring a positive outcome for all parties involved.

YOUR LEGACY IS OUR LEGACY

We have a long history of supporting founding business owners in their succession strategies. We put great emphasis on understanding the unique interests of selling owners, and the ingredients that have made their businesses successful. Our investments are made not just in bricks and mortar, but also in people who provide the true foundation of our success.

WE ARE A BALANCED TEAM WITH DECADES OF EXPERIENCE

Our team is comprised of a broad scope of operational, financial and legal know-how through decades of experience across different industries and transaction types. As sophisticated investors we take time to ensure transparency and understanding through all steps of a transaction process, while as business operators we lead with trust and integrity, empowering teams to reach their full potential.

WE HAVE A STRONG PROFESSIONAL NETWORK

Our wealth of experience as operators and M&A professionals has also allowed us to build a trusted network of advisors whose operating talent, subject matter expertise and professionalism enables us to get things done.
