Today’s uncertain economy makes it increasingly important for business owners and investors to understand the state of debt capital markets and the options available to support growth.
In our new Access Insight, Senior Advisor Tom Gregory shares his view on the current condition of debt capital markets, the unique challenges facing midmarket private equity-backed businesses, and the opportunity for creative capital solutions.
“In the face of increased challenges, buyers and sellers still want to get deals done, and business owners want to grow and scale. The way capital markets are evolving, solutions are emerging to address this changing market context. To do this, more creative deal terms and financing are being considered.”
The world of private equity is loaded with stories of failed investments and unsuccessful partnerships between investors, entrepreneurs, and founders of businesses.
What often started with the right intent—partnering to grow and scale a business—may not have played out as either side expected, leading to frustration and remorse.
At Access Holdings, we are passionate about building enduring businesses that deliver long-term value to our partners. To achieve this, we believe a business must work to positively impact its stakeholders. This belief has been fundamental to our investment strategy as we have worked to consistently try and “do the right thing.”
Given the rapidly evolving environmental, social, and governance (ESG) landscape, we embarked on a journey to formalize our approach to implementing and managing ESG both at Access and our portfolio companies.
Here at Access Holdings, we are often asked what differentiates us from the thousands of other private equity firms operating in a crowded – and highly competitive – investment environment.
The Access Way showcases and explains our purposeful approach to investing, our deep commitment to partnership, and our focus on scaling and creating enduring businesses.
