Approach

Avista Capital Partners approaches private equity investing based on a proven methodology derived from extensive experience and success—it was built through years of disciplined focus on generating value.

Avista's strategy emphasizes more than merely "good buying." Our Investment Partners take an active role in supporting strong management teams and working with portfolio companies to develop strategic plans, enhance organic growth, pursue value-creating acquisitions and increase operational efficiencies. Additionally, our Operating Executives provide the strategic insight, operational oversight and counsel that help drive growth and performance, creating long-term value.

Our Global Partnership Strategy

Avista’s Global Partnership Strategy utilizes the sector-specific expertise of its Investment Partners paired with that of Operating Executives to source, evaluate, oversee and manage portfolio companies. Most of Avista’s eight Operating Executives have worked with the Investment Partners for many years, including when they were at DLJMB.

We believe that the extensive networks of relationships developed by our investment team and Operating Executives are critical to Avista’s ability to source deals for each of the firm’s targeted industry sectors.

Avista’s professionals have long recognized that a sponsor cannot only be a “good buyer” of companies to achieve success. To create long-term value, Avista utilizes a combination of private equity professionals and Operating Executives to create a cohesive team that blends financial sophistication, industry knowledge and business management skills. Avista has significant experience in assembling strong management teams and working with portfolio companies to develop strategic plans, enhance organic growth, pursue accretive acquisitions and increase operational efficiencies. Avista utilizes a proactive, hands-on and value-added approach.

The Global Partnership Strategy helped make DLJ Merchant Banking Partners one of the most successful private equity franchises in the world, and remains the cornerstone of Avista.
