Designed to take advantage of a rapidly evolving investment landscape, we serve as a source of differentiated investment opportunities for our investors and an innovative solution provider to sellers.
Leveraging the strength of the firm’s global platform, our portfolios provide exposure to timely investment themes across asset classes, industries and geographies.
Nimble and Decisive
Identifying and executing on diverse opportunities requires a broad, deep and experienced perspective balanced by the ability to act in a nimble, decisive manner.
Taking advantage of synergies
The Kizzy Investment team leverages intellectual capital embedded in businesses that cover every major alternative asset. This enables us to assess and synthesize a broad range of market information into actionable investment ideas.
Focus on managing risk
With little tolerance for capital loss, our investment process seeks to identify opportunities with asymmetric return profiles often characterized by downside protection.
Kizzy Investments’ flexible mandate is designed to allow our team to adjust to changing market circumstances, facilitating the creation of a balanced, complementary portfolio with an attractive overall risk/return profile.
DRIVING Transformative Impact
We strive to create value by investing in great businesses where our capital, strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive transformation that unlocks the company’s potential. In addition to benefiting our members, the improvements in growth and global competitiveness benefit workers, communities and other stakeholders. We are patient investors who practice the art of the long view, and are committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for our businesses and our members.
DISCIPLINED Due Diligence
Our investment approach is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the catalysts for increased value. We purposefully engage only in friendly transactions and work with talented management teams to achieve transformative results. Our specialized Portfolio Operations Group helps to maximize value by improving processes across varied elements of a business’s operations. The returns that these investments earn for our members.
We are constantly looking for situations where we see something, or we are able to add value in a way that our competitors don't. Our people feel the obligation to go out there and find special situations where we can intervene to drive change.
BUY AND BUILD PLATFORMS
Smaller companies, scalable platforms, backable management teams. In our “buy-and-build” transactions we tend to invest in smaller companies that have scalable platforms and backable management teams in large, fragmented industries, where we believe there are substantial revenue and margin benefits from sector consolidation.
