Waud Capital Partners builds strategic assets and manages risk by focusing on growth and operational improvements while utilizing prudent leverage to enhance, rather than drive, returns. This may include pursuing the following types of investments:
- Buy and Build - initial platforms grown through add-on acquisitions
- Buy and Grow - pursuing organic growth to create value
- Management-led - partnering with executives prior to platform identification
In each of these approaches, WCP utilizes its three phase investment strategy, whereby WCP typically invests a portion of its equity commitment up front and reserves the remaining capital for growth, deploying it over time and thereby generating superior risk-adjusted returns.
