We believe in a long-term, value-based approach to investing and a business philosophy centered around humility and integrity. We look for companies where traditional private equity is not a fit due to investment horizons, seller preferences, and/or transaction complexity.
Devonshire is a solution for owners who may be seeking personal liquidity, contemplating a succession plan, or looking for a motivated partner who can help grow their business and provide additional capital and advice. We understand that selling a business can be a once-in-a-lifetime decision that has many personal and professional aspects, so our approach offers the flexibility to meet the particular needs of owners.
Unlike traditional private equity firms or other institutional buyers, our investment strategy is to buy and hold, giving us the flexibility and patience to help each business grow.
We are investors whose financial interests are directly aligned with the fortunes of the businesses we invest in. That means any business we invest in receives not only our capital but also our time and attention.
We don’t have a short-term investment horizon that dictates our decision-making or creates pressure to make unnecessary changes. We behave as if we will own forever.
We’ve worked with companies of all sizes across industries. We understand the day-to-day challenges businesses face, and we have personal experience helping businesses improve and grow.
We take a hands-on approach to our investments, only when it is helpful. Our approach is to be a supportive partner, and we are always available to help management teams solve problems, improve operations, and grow.
