Leveraging over 50 years of broad-based, asset management, legal, accounting, investment banking, and operations experience, the CornerPost team patiently and selectively makes control investments in business opportunities arising from underperformance, corporate divestiture, undercapitalization, seller distress and turnaround situations. CornerPost enhances value in these situations through disciplined asset management processes.
In part, we formed CornerPost to take advantage of unique investment opportunities presented by the lower end of an unstable investment environment. We also want to build a firm that presents investors with a unique option at the lower end of the private equity market. Our key tenets – Professionalism, Transparency, Discipline, Communication, and Integrity – are integrated into the development and implementation of our formal, deliverable processes for investor relations, marketing, asset management, underwriting, and team development.
We pursue a value investing strategy, choosing to look at business that are too small or too management intensive for our competitors. Ideally, we pursue investments at or below the value of underlying assets or collateral in order to protect investment capital against market declines. We then have the opportunity to create attractive returns through implementation of operational change, not mere financial engineering.
CornerPost Capital is a private equity sponsor and asset management firm, providing capital, expertise and leadership to privately held businesses.
