Firm Overview

Trivest Partners, headquartered in Miami (HQ), and with a presence in Charlotte, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto, is exclusively focused on the support and growth of founder-led and family-owned businesses in the U.S. and Canada in both control and non-control transactions. Founded in 1981, the firm has completed more than 500 investments at a total value of more than $8 billion. Trivest provides a comprehensive offering for Founders seeking partnership and/or an ownership transition of their business. The Firm uses a unique, flexible, and collaborative approach to deal execution (“The Trivest Promise”) which has built significant trust in the Trivest brand among Founders and has contributed to sustained activity.

Why do prospects want to do business with the firm?
They believe that “prospects” want to do business for all of the reasons described previously related to the “Trivest Promise”. The Firm is a strong believer in the “Golden Rule”: treating people the way that we would want to be treated. The proof is here: more than 40 Founders have invested their own personal capital in Trivest funds.

Why do intermediaries present opportunities and want to conduct transactions with the firm?
Trivest reviews more than 4,000 deals each year. They have a highly engaged network of brokers and intermediaries that trust Trivest to operate with speed and transparency. They work hard to show the overwhelming good that private equity can do for growing a company and building wealth for its owners and employees, not promote the industry’s “sharp elbow” perception so often referenced. Their network knows Trivest will act with integrity, forged by more than four decades of doing the right thing by Founders and Brokers alike.
