Vestar Capital Partners
Welcome to Vestar.
Vestar is a leading private equity firm specializing in middle-market management buyouts and growth capital investments. For 25 years, we have been seeking out talented management teams and supporting their entrepreneurial dreams, allowing them to run their companies as owners, with an eye toward long-term value creation.
Our investments in management have achieved a performance record that’s among the best in our field: 69 transactions completed, in companies with a total value of more than $30 billion, with consistently excellent returns. Since our founding in 1988, we have managed six investment funds dedicated exclusively to middle-market private equity investing.
Today Vestar has approximately $5.5 billion of committed capital. From our headquarters in New York, we invest in a wide variety of industries, in companies that primarily range in value from $250 million to $750 million.
Wherever we invest, whatever the industry or amount of our investment, our core philosophy is always the same: partner with talented people, develop long-term relationships based on trust and honesty, and together we will achieve success.
Because people are the focus of our investments, we have chosen to make them the focus of our website as well. In videos throughout the site, our professionals and management partners will tell you about Vestar in their own words. We hope this will give you a true picture of who we are and how we work, and what a partnership with Vestar is all about.
