Founded in 1987, Clairvest is a Toronto-based private equity management firm with approximately C$1 billion of equity capital under management. We invest in successful mid-market companies, principally in North America, across a wide array of industries.
The underlying philosophy of Clairvest is the concept of partnership: We will succeed when the operating companies in which we invest succeed. We structure our investments to closely align our interests with the management of our portfolio companies. In each of our portfolio companies, we invest in partnership with management who have personally invested their own capital in the company. We work together with the management of our portfolio companies to create long-term financial returns for all shareholders. Through incentive structures in place for management, we ensure that management returns on their capital exceed our own.
