Our Approach


We partner with management to create sustainable, long-term value based on trust, a shared vision, intense collaboration, and the desire to succeed. We structure our investments to align interests of all shareholders – the management teams and founders we partner with are owners alongside us.

Collectively, we design enhanced operating strategies that increase efficiency and reduce complexity while accelerating organic growth and strategic acquisitions.

We are business builders

Our team has spent their careers managing and investing in businesses with complex, global operations, executing accretive M&A transactions, providing strategic leadership, and improving operations. We prioritize growth and construct capital structures to preserve flexibility.

Extensive expert resources

Our philosophy is simple: partner with talented leaders, operate with creativity and integrity, and learn continuously. Our companies benefit from the collective business and investment experience of our team, the expertise of our in-house operating resources, and the niche sector knowledge of the Argand Senior Executive Advisors.

Argand’s Senior Executive Advisors are a group of highly accomplished executives and advisors with expertise across a broad spectrum of industrial sectors, finance and advisory services. Our Senior Executive Advisors provide tailored, on-the-ground operating expertise and industry insights for each of our companies and are fully integrated into our investment process.

While our Senior Executive Advisors, or SEA, are not personnel or affiliates of Argand and they have no formal obligation to assist Argand, several SEA have verbally expressed an interest in providing services to assist Argand, including in evaluating, monitoring and managing our portfolio companies. Certain SEA, individually or through the respective firms in which they serve in roles such as partners and officers, provide such services to Argand. Our SEA may also become directors, officers or employees of our companies.
