Fenton Place Capital

Our affiliate, Fenton Place Capital, is an internally-funded private equity firm. We invest significant amounts of our own capital into each transaction and purposefully limit the number of investments we make, ensuring greater operational and strategic support for each. FPC will consider both control investments and non-control investments with active board representation. Without limitations on deployed capital experienced by traditional private equity funds, FPC is focused on building long-term value rather than short-term returns.
