About Brookside Equity Partners
Brookside Equity Partners sponsors control private equity investments in middle-market companies. We also co-invest equity alongside other investment firms, family offices and financial sponsors.
Brookside Equity Partners is not a traditional fund. Our capital is family capital, evergreen, patient and flexible. Our investment horizons are determined by the needs of the businesses in which we invest, rather than by outside limited partners. This flexibility distinguishes us from other private equity groups which may seek investment realizations based on fund raising cycles rather than fundamental business reasons. Brookside Equity Partners structures investments with a conservative capital base and a term that is appropriate for the companies in which we invest. We are proud of our successful investment track record, beginning with the inception of our predecessor entity in 1977.
