Our approach integrates four essential elements — sector expertise, proven track record, Global Partner Network and FTV Propel, our in-house operational experts — to help you drive exceptional growth for your business.

How We Help Great Companies Grow


Sector Expertise

Our multi-decade sector focus means we can add value right from the start, drawing on a deep understanding of your business model, market dynamics, competition and growth levers.


Proven Track Record

FTV has invested over $5.3 billion in 140+ companies to create $38 billion in enterprise value. We have helped our companies increase annual revenue growth from investment to exit by nearly 4x on average.

Our theme-based strategy identifies and capitalizes on emerging structural changes in complex, high-growth markets. We recognize that every company has its own unique circumstances and specific capital needs and we create flexible, custom structures to help advance your goals.

We assist our companies with expansion strategy; budgeting and financial functions; M&A guidance for acquisitions; merger, sale and IPO support; additional capital procurement and more.

Using a founder-friendly flexible capital approach to meet your needs, we typically invest $30 – $200+ million to:

  • Fuel organic growth
  • Expand geographic reach
  • Optimize capital structure or meet shareholder liquidity needs
  • Pursue strategic acquisitions
  • Innovative solutions in our sector focus areas
  • Management team looking for a partner focused on driving growth
  • $10 million – $100 million annualized revenue
  • High-growth businesses with a minimum 20%+ historical and near-term revenue growth
  • Enduring customer relationships that often generate recurring revenue
