Our Background: Our Private Equity team was launched in 2016 to meet demand by Canadian entrepreneurs for growth capital to support the evolution of their businesses. We are a dedicated team of 15 professionals with significant multi-asset experience, a quickly expanding and successful track record, and access to our three accomplished Advisory Council members, Bill Aziz, Anthony Sobel and Lindsay Sparks, as well as Fengate’s 40 years of network and relationships.

Our Focus: Our focus is to partner with proven operators and entrepreneurs who want to maximize value by accelerating the growth of their business platform and who see a key catalyst they can take advantage of to do so. While we maintain the flexibility to invest across multiple sectors throughout North America, our primary focus is on investing in the unmet demand from Canadian businesses for Transformational Growth Capital.

Our Approach: We identify operators and entrepreneurs who we can partner with, not acquire, and provide Transformational Growth Capital to those partners in the following ways:

  • Financial Capital in the form of creative capital solutions that achieve the return expectations of our investors, facilitate strong alignment of interest with our partners, and support the execution of our partners’ operational growth plans.
  • Human Capital in the form of access to specialized resources from Fengate, including finance, legal, human resources, marketing and technology support, our Advisory Committee, and our network of experts and relationships.
  • Strategic Capital in the form of strategic input and guidance to enable our partners to focus on the day-to-day operations of the business while implementing the necessary initiatives to achieve their long-term growth objectives.

Our Values: As a business with more than 40 years of successful partnerships, we believe that strong relationships are built upon a foundation of transparency, trust and alignment. These fundamental beliefs are core to not only what we do, but also how we do it.
