Our Advantage
and Approach

With significant investing and operating experience and a history of building successful businesses, we remain committed to our traditional core values of honesty, integrity and loyalty. We believe in doing business the right way in order to build transparent relationships with business owners, management teams, employees and customers.

Pritzker Private Capital has been investing in middle-market companies since 2002 and takes great pride in our history of successfully building long-standing relationships and embracing the complexities inherent in scaling a business. Our access to a broad network of advisors, strategic partners and potential customers are key to supporting our management teams' efforts to drive growth.

Our long-duration capital base provides the flexibility to deploy financial and other resources needed to grow middle-market companies. This same flexibility applies to our investment horizon, enabling us to make decisions in partnership with management in the best interests of our companies.

We understand how to successfully align the strategies and goals of management teams to build category-leading businesses. Our team of over 40 investment and operating professionals give us the experience and scale to support our companies’ growth strategies. We focus on doing what is best for the long-term, versus simply realizing short-term gains.

Our Differentiated
approach

Deep Appreciation for Family-and Entrepreneur-owned Businesses

At Pritzker Private Capital, we have a deep appreciation for family- and entrepreneur-owned businesses. We also understand there may come a time when there is a need to diversify wealth, transition ownership of a business and/or bring on a capital partner. Finding that partner who values the employees, culture, relationships and reputation of the company and who can be trusted to position that company for continued success is paramount.

Multi-generational Legacy of Building and Operating Successful Companies

Pritzker Private Capital has a multi-generational legacy of building and operating successful companies. At our core, we understand the importance of preserving what makes a company special and sensitive to how we handle ownership transitions.

  • We encourage business owners to remain involved, if they choose, to manage their companies and maintain a meaningful ownership stake
  • We have significant flexibility to creatively structure transactions that meet the needs of business owners, especially families and entrepreneurs
