We are one of Canada's leading family offices that actively invests our own capital and operating knowledge in a diverse group of companies. Our intention is to invest, build and hold assets intergenerationally to create a lasting impact on the lives of our partners, our employees, our family and our community.
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 an established reputation for conducting business with integrity. We do what we say we will do.
Our office is the majority owner of a broad portfolio of companies operating in the food, real estate and industrial sectors. We seek to grow our portfolio both organically through existing companies and through the acquisition of new platforms that meet our criteria.
WE ARE A SINGLE-FAMILY OFFICE
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.
