Investment Strategy

Symmetric Capital invests in growing, profitable companies throughout the U.S. and Canada. Typically owned by their founders, a family, or a small partnership, these businesses have already achieved notable market and financial success, yet their owners and managers choose to bring in a new partner – with capital, relevant experience, deep networks, and a strong track record of collaborative relationships – to build even stronger companies and greater equity value.

In addition to providing long-term capital for owners and their growing businesses, we work closely with management throughout the duration of our investment, typically four to seven years, to help achieve their financial, strategic, and operational goals. Our level of involvement and contributions will vary over time with the evolving needs and priorities of each business, but we are consistently active, informed, and thoughtful partners, with practical skills in such areas as:

  • Providing fact-based insights and a different perspective on critical strategic, operational, and financial issues.
  • Sharing real-world experiences and effective strategies gleaned from the more than 40 growth companies with which we have collaborated over the past two decades.
  • Utilizing our networks for recruiting, capital raising, revenue opportunities, and liquidity events.
  • Implementing best practices to strengthen financial systems and controls, and to improve operating metrics and incentives.
  • Identifying, negotiating, and financing add-on acquisitions.
  • Acting as a "sounding board" and trusted advisor for senior management to discuss strategy, risks, opportunities, acquisitions, personnel issues, and potential liquidity events.
