We made our first consumer-related investment in 1984 and have since invested $2.7 billion in the sector through 37 platform investments and a significant number of add-on acquisitions. We define the consumer sector broadly, and target investments in a wide range of consumer-related industries, including:
- Consumer Products
- Direct Marketing
- Retail Services
Within these segments of the consumer sector, we seek companies with attractive competitive positions, strong brands, loyal customer bases, compelling returns on capital and the ability to grow into new geographies, product segments or sales channels. A list of our current and previous consumer investments can be found here.
