Philosophy

We believe that the lower middle market is fundamentally underserved. We invest the time and capital necessary to create value in this market for everyone we work with – companies, management teams, and investors. We seek out opportunities and companies in the lower middle market with proven business models, leading market positions, high free cash flow, and strong management teams. We believe that by continuing to adhere to this approach, we can generate attractive risk-adjusted returns and minimize capital losses.

Our investment strategy also includes taking a proactive stance towards risk management. This includes conducting intensive due diligence prior to investing, utilizing our flexible mandate to structure our investments so as to withstand both positive and negative events, and ongoing and active portfolio management, including board observation rights in conjunction with almost all of our investments.

Everside's approach is based on cooperation and trust, derived from:

  • Partnering with regional focused, niche and top performing fund managers
  • Having its own highly efficient and scalable origination platform
  • Employing a rigorous underwriting and monitoring process executed by an experienced team
