Field Creek invests its own capital in each of its transactions and will typically invest alongside a select group of co-investors. To maintain maximum flexibility in its investment approach, the firm neither maintains nor manages a fund. Instead, each transaction is financed discernibly through the firm’s contacts based on the particular needs of each situation. The firm also will consider acquiring minority positions and as such will look to co-invest in opportunities led by other, similarly focused investors.
Field Creek takes the approach that each transaction is unique, presenting its own set of needs, opportunities and challenges. The firm thus looks to work with management and owners to construct a transaction which addresses these unique circumstances. This flexible approach can among other things include full or partial liquidity to current owners, broader equity participation for key employees, and a transition plan which is implemented over time.
Field Creek also takes the approach of honoring each firm’s unique legacy while, at the same time, assisting the company as it enters into new stages of growth and development. Consistent with this, Field Creek believes that day-to-day management of each business is best left with its managers and/or owner-managers. Field Creek instead looks to add value and assist businesses in achieving success by focusing on areas such as strategic planning and review, finance, executive and board recruitment, and acquisitions.
