At Kingfish, we believe that successful private equity investing requires a combination of deep industry insight, operating experience and the ability to leverage high impact relationships.
Kingfish was founded in 2004 with a simple premise: by systematically partnering with the best industry and operating executives we can leverage a wealth of knowledge, expertise and relationships to drive outsized investment success.
We have built a platform that allows us to rapidly identify, and build relationships with, highly-relevant top executives with whom we can pursue private equity investments. To date we have worked on over 500 transactions alongside several top private equity sponsors whose investment interests span a diverse array of industries, styles and strategies. In every case we have assembled a team of Executive Advisors — founders, CEOs and senior industry operators– each hand-selected to advise on transactions specific to their area of expertise.
Our team brings together a diverse blend of backgrounds that allows us to evaluate each opportunity through the eyes of both an investor and a company builder. We have been entrepreneurs, private investors, operators and advisors. We have the situational fluency to assess investment opportunities as well as an appreciation for the challenges involved in building a successful business.
