PRIVATE CAPITAL MANAGEMENT
Investing private equity / venture capital
First Analysis is a leading private growth equity investor. We have one of the longest records (27 years) in private capital investing, transitioning through three major long-term investment cycles and having invested $700 million across multiple highly diversified funds.
First Analysis invests mainly in the United States with a focus on our three sectors of expertise: health care productivity, broadband enabled businesses (IT applications and outsourced services), and clean-tech / infrastructure. We invest for expansion and growth in small and mid-size companies with established business models, high internal growth rates, and large-market leadership potential.
Deep portfolio company involvement
We help companies achieve highly profitable leadership positions in large markets. First Analysis is typically the lead (or sole) outside investor and invests up to $15 million. First Analysis works closely with its portfolio companies in many areas including:
- Sales and marketing
- Corporate development
Unique approach is key to success
We build and maintain broad, deep, long-term domain expertise through a research and investment focus that encompasses both the private and public companies in our sectors of expertise. Relative to traditional approaches, this approach enables First Analysis to add unique value as an investor through:
- Superior understanding of our industries, for assistance with strategic planning
- Broader and deeper networks of industry contacts, for assistance with recruitment, marketing, and selling
- Better understanding of the institutional investor community, for subsequent financings
- A longer-term perspective on company development—well beyond the IPO
