Bowside Capital

Bowside Capital is an equity provider to independent sponsor transactions and co-invests with small buyout funds.

We invest with small buyout managers that typically acquire consumer, niche manufacturing, industrial, business services, energy services, financial services, healthcare services, specialty chemicals, and distribution companies with revenues of $10 million to $100 million.

The historical return differential between upper and lower quartile small buyout managers is significant.  We believe that an upper quartile small buyout manager will have a demonstrated ability to:

  • Source proprietary transactions in their sector of focus
  • Partner with management teams
  • Drive the value creation process in their portfolio companies
  • Manage their investments through various economic cycles
  • Leverage the experience and networks of their investor base

We do not invest in credit, growth equity, real estate, or venture capital and only consider investments in the U.S.
