Farmington Fund was formed as an integral part of the Partnersí strategy of providing hands-on, value-added counsel to management teams in assisting to build franchise value over a period of time. We look for companies with between $5 and $100 million of revenues that are poised for rapid growth. We seek to establish partnerships with entrepreneurs and are active both as board members and as strategic advisors throughout the life of the investments. The Fund will have an emphasis on specialty insurance underwriting, service and distribution platforms.
Our current direct investment size is modest. We are, however, capable of bringing substantially larger amounts of capital to a transaction through our relationships with co-investors, strategic partners and debt providers. We often take equity positions as part of our merchant banking approach to a long term partnership with clients.
