TowerBrook About us

Our purpose

We work to protect and grow the savings
of our investors and their families
by partnering with management teams and employees
to build excellent companies
that make a positive impact on society.

By following our values, we can demonstrate that
responsible ownership is excellent business practice
that creates value for all stakeholders.

Our mission

Our mission is to deliver superior, risk-adjusted returns to our investors on a consistent and responsible basis.

Integrity, partnership, discipline and creativity are fundamental to the way we work. We strive to excel in everything we do.

Integrity & partnership: our team
Teamwork and a collegial environment are central to our culture. We value honesty and humility. We respect the views of others and we encourage debate and intellectual curiosity.

We recruit outstanding people who are able to work across diverse cultures and regions as one team. We align our interests within our team and with our investors and management partners. We believe in supporting the local communities where we live and work.

Discipline & creativity: our business
We are committed to our strategy. This requires patience and discipline in identifying and developing investment opportunities. We seek to partner closely with exceptional managers to drive value creation in all our investments.

We encourage creative thinking: it fosters flexibility, resourcefulness and the entrepreneurial spirit.

Our strategy

TowerBrook’s value creation strategy aims to transform the capabilities and the prospects of the businesses in which we invest.

We are disciplined investors with a commitment to fundamental value. We seek to deliver superior, risk-adjusted returns to investors on a consistent and responsible basis.

We invest through different Funds that allow us to access a range of opportunities through the cycle and across the capital structure. We partner with highly talented managers and our network of experienced advisors to optimise performance and unlock growth. Our entrepreneurial, multinational, single-team approach allows us to act with speed and certainty in multiple jurisdictions.

TowerBrook’s Private Equity strategy is to pursue selected, control-oriented investments in large and mid-market companies, principally on a proprietary basis and often in situations characterised by complexity.

Our Private Equity Funds invest in a range of sectors and types of businesses on both sides of the Atlantic. We focus on companies where we have identified potential for significant improvement and growth.

TowerBrook’s Structured Opportunities strategy leverages our experience and expertise to complement and enhance our private equity investing activity.  It allows us to access a broad array of opportunities, principally via structured asset and structured equity investments.

Our Structured Opportunities Fund is designed to provide our portfolio companies with access to our expertise and funding without ceding control.

Our culture

We promote responsible policies and practices within TowerBrook and in our portfolio companies.

We seek to create a dynamic professional environment that attracts exceptional talent to our firm. We are proud of the culture we have nurtured at TowerBrook, and we work hard to ensure it continues to flourish.

We expect each member of our team to show leadership by exemplifying and promoting TowerBrook’s values, internally and externally. We invest in leadership and professional development for senior and junior members of the TowerBrook team to maximise the potential and performance of individuals and of our firm.

Our aim is to continue building a diverse, inclusive team that will thrive on generating ideas, solving problems and stimulating value creation.

Diversity and inclusion

TowerBrook is committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce that embodies integrity, teamwork and respect for others and encourages new ideas and perspectives.

We believe that diverse and inclusive teams make better decisions, and diverse teams build better businesses. TowerBrook’s support for diversity and equal opportunity is integral to our culture and at the core of our identity as a firm. Our commitment is reflected in our Responsible Ownership Statement and our Purpose and Mission Statements.

We have formed a Diversity Working Group comprised of senior professionals from across the firm to lead the development and assessment of our diversity and inclusion initiatives. We seek to recruit top talent from a diverse pool of candidates, and ensure that we are supporting, mentoring, developing and retaining highly talented people over the long term.

We include diversity and inclusion considerations as part of our investment process and seek to build diverse Boards and management teams in the companies we control. We have implemented anti-harassment policies, equal opportunity employment policies, and complaints procedures, and we encourage our portfolio companies to do the same.

As a firm, we are also committed to fostering a work environment and career progression path that is supportive to primary and secondary caregivers, as reflected in our Parental Leave Policy.

We continue to develop metrics to help us track the progress of our firm and our portfolio companies in promoting a diverse and inclusive working environment. We keep our diversity programme, and our evaluation of its effectiveness, under constant review.
