INVESTMENT APPROACH

At ASGARD, we invest in and partner with companies, management teams and entrepreneurs who align with our values with the goal of creating and building successful businesses together. We seek control investment opportunities in the lower middle market in industries and business models that we experientially know and understand.

We look for both healthy companies and those in the midst of transitions or experiencing operational or financial challenges. Our investment philosophy is premised on sustainable long‐term value creation, and we take a multi‐disciplinary approach by leveraging our investing, operating, and capital markets experience to realize financial and operational objectives that make a real impact.

We are a cohesive team, with decades of diverse investing and operating experience, well‐suited to drive value and assist companies with transformational change.

INVESTMENT CRITERIA

A key consideration for investment is the alignment of the philosophy of the company and management with our Ten Founding Truths. We seek control investments in companies primarily in North America and will consider global investments and add-ons, particularly in Europe.
