Company Description

Top Tier Capital Partners focuses on specialized areas of private equity including venture capital and growth capital. As a fund-of-funds investor, they invest in both growth- and value-oriented products and business models with exceptional management teams. They target venture capital, growth capital and co-investments with proven managers, and have the added flexibility to make traditional private equity fund investments and secondary purchases of targeted fund managers.Top Tier's venture capital strategy focuses on providing access to the very best venture capital managers. The firm also seeks emerging managers with the potential to become leaders in the field. Their program has a small-fund bias, balanced by a short list of best-in-class larger funds. Top Tier's multi-industry strategy focuses on the information technology, healthcare and clean technology sectors. Most of their capital is invested in early-stage companies, with the balance invested in late-stage and growth equity, which reduces volatility and allows for more rapid exits.In certain circumstances, the firm co-invests alongside a select list of general partners well known to Top Tier in companies that need additional capital to foster growth. In these transactions, they invest directly in the securities of the portfolio company. This cost-effective strategy allows investors to put more money to work with top-performing general partners and into later-stage companies executing a growth stage business plan. Top Tier team has invested directly in portfolio companies across a full range of economic and credit cycles.The firm's growth capital strategy focuses on a select group of growth equity and small-cap private equity funds in North America particularly those focused on companies with enterprise values of $300 million or less. Small companies that grow internally, through transforming acquisitions or through restructuring, create a sustainable increase in enterprise value and are not dependent on high levels of leverage to drive returns. Top Tier's rigorous criteria and long history of growth and private equity relationships guide them to the best-performing managers. The result is a highly focused but diversified growth capital portfolio.
