BUILDING WINNING PARTNERSHIPS

We are a leading Canadian family office, actively investing our own capital and operating knowledge in a diverse group of companies and investments. Our intention is to build and hold our investments intergenerationally to create a lasting impact on the lives of our partners, our employees, our families, and our community.
 
Based in Vancouver, our office combines decades of transaction and operational experience, having made control investments in over 80 private companies. We are highly experienced equity investors with a genuine reputation for conducting business with integrity, and for being the partner of choice in working with founders and management teams to continue their legacy of building great businesses. 

Today, our office is the owner of a broad portfolio of companies operating in a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, distribution, food, transportation services, industrial and real estate.
