Healthcare Direct Investing

Overview

We’ve created an approach to direct private investment centered on simplicity, flexibility, and creativity. For us, it’s about building outstanding partnerships and businesses without exception and fostering growth without friction. We invest long-term, permanent capital, resources and energy in healthcare companies that are creating lasting value and changing the world for the better.


Seeking Outstanding Partners

At the end of the day, we are in the people business. Leadership, talent and relationships are paramount to success. We work with founders and leaders who think big, have high standards and challenge the status quo. That’s why Cresset Partners focuses on long term partnerships with like-minded entrepreneurs, founders, and management teams.


Investment Strategy & Focus

We typically invest $10 – $100 million in U.S.-based businesses with more than $5 million of EBITDA.

Sectors

We have experience across a range of specialty providers (i.e. urgent care, dermatology, dental, behavioral health), healthcare IT and services, as well as medical devices. We love opportunities where we can make a difference in strategic direction to drive growth and industry consolidation.

Structure

We do our best when we invest in transactions where we partner with owners and management to jointly drive strategy and execution to create long-term value. Given our long-term orientation, we are flexible regarding control and transaction structure and focus on creating strong equity alignment among our team and our investment partners and management.
