The Business Council is a voluntary association of business leaders whose members meet several times a year for the free exchange of ideas both among themselves and with thought leaders from many sectors. In its most fundamental form, the Council seeks to foster understanding through discussion. It promotes learning, best practice sharing and networking by its members with a view to making a contribution to our society, the global economy and to business generally. Since its founding more than 75 years ago, The Business Council membership has consisted of a group of current or former chief executive officers from a broad range of companies. All major industries are represented among the members of The Business Council. Because schedule demands on senior business executives are extensive, the Council provides an especially valuable opportunity to discuss major subjects in a broader ranging forum than is normally available in the course of business activities. As part of its process, the Council invites leaders in government, politics, academia, science, medicine, technology and other sectors to address the Council and to participate in its discussions. Council members hope that these discussions result in better understanding by their invited guests as well as by the members themselves. Today, the Council meets three times a year in a collegial atmosphere to share and explore ideas.As a gathering of peers from many fields, the Council is entirely an educational and deliberative forum. It never takes positions as an organization and does not advocate any policy or course of action. Individual members sometimes do present their own views in public discussions. But they do so as individuals, rather than as representatives of the Council.

The group employs a disciplined, research-intensive analytic process in their search for businesses that possess sustainable long-term competitive advantages and are managed by honest, astute and shareholder-driven people. In addition to investing in equities, MSD maintains a substantial convertible bond portfolio.Private equity is an integral part of the long-term investment strategy of MSD. They seek to deploy capital in outstanding businesses with excellent management teams at attractive valuations. As distinct from private equity funds, they provide long-term, permanent capital and are able to invest without the pressures of fund raising.MSD invests in established public and private companies through privately negotiated transactions, including buyouts of private companies and divisions of public or private companies and acquisitions of public companies through going private transactions. They also make purchases of blocks of stock from public or private companies seeking equity capital or persons, families or funds seeking liquidity on existing investments. Transaction examples include leveraged and management buyouts, going private transactions, mezzanine debt and other structured investments, Private Investments in Public Entities (PIPEs) and growth equity financings, platform acquisitions and roll-ups and partnerships with other financial sponsors.While they maintain a generalist approach with regard to industries and transaction structures, they generally seek to invest in non-technology companies as a means to diversify their portfolio.MSD seeks investments with the following characteristics: solid business fundamentals including recurring revenue, high margin businesses with organic growth potential and favorable long-term prospects. They also seek investments in companies with stable, predictable operating earnings and free cash flow as evidenced by consistent operating history, a strong and sustainable market position based on high barriers to entry, attractive valuations and favorable transaction structures. Other considerations are sensible valuation multiples with attractive free cash flow yields, conservative leverage ratios with emphasis on safety of principal and strong management teams.MSD also engages in special opportunities investing. The group focuses on a variety of event-driven investment strategies including distressed debt investing, equity restructurings, direct investments and merger arbitrage.The firm's Partnership Investments group invests in a select number of investment partnerships across a variety of investment disciplines and asset classes, including hedge funds employing specific public equity and fixed-income strategies, private equity funds and real estate.
