Metalmark Capital seeks to build long-term value through active and supportive partnerships with the companies and management teams in which we invest. By taking a hands-on approach to helping businesses in all stages of development achieve their goals, we strive to be a major contributor to their growth and success.
Enabling enterprises to achieve success
We work to create and transform companies, growing them organically and/or through acquisition, and often creating companies of a much larger scale. With diligence and creativity, a shared vision with management and consistent support regardless of market conditions, our goal is to create exceptional value in every company in which we invest.
A long-term partnership with management
We partner with management teams and successfully maintain relationships over long periods of time. Often, we make several investments with the same managers over time — working with them as they move from one entrepreneurial venture to the next. In each investment we make, we carefully align interests and incentives.
20+ years of private equity experience
Our heritage stretches more than 20 years, since our beginnings as part of Morgan Stanley Capital Partners. Our experienced principals and professionals have a long history of working together as a team, and most of them have spent their entire careers in private equity.
Deep industry knowledge and relationships
We are a knowledgeable, educated partner who adds strategic value to our portfolio companies. We have deep expertise in our core industries, gained from our two decades of private equity investing experience. We augment our expertise with the insights of an actively engaged Advisory Board — made up of some of the world's best minds in a range of industries — and the knowledge of 150 CEOs and other senior managers with whom we maintain proprietary relationships.
Ability to manage complex transactions
We don't shy away from complexity — we believe it creates opportunity. We take the time and make the effort needed to work with companies facing difficult transformations or stringent regulatory issues, and work alongside them to make their vision reality.
