Copeley is unique in that our capital comes from the principals of the firm which provides us with significant flexibility in how we approach transactions. Our investments are often precipitated by a divergence in the long-term needs of a business and the financial goals of its equity holders.
We do not seek to get involved in the day-to-day operations of our companies but instead serve as a resource to our teams as they build value. We believe every company is unique and we cater our approach to the needs of each business. Our approach with our management partners emphasizes respect, candid communication, and trust. We seek to hold no more than six businesses at a time so that we can allocate sufficient time to each company.
We focus on identifying businesses that are established leaders in their markets and that have attractive economic characteristics and growth potential.
Our team has experience investing in businesses spanning a broad range of industries. Our investment strategy is based on leveraging our industry experience, while maintaining the opportunistic approach that has served us historically. Below is a list of industries of interest to our team:
