Our Business Principles are the foundation of our culture of outstanding service, teamwork, excellence, and personal responsibility and accountability.
Integrity and honesty are at the heart of our firm, informing what we do and how we do it. Integrity establishes the trust that builds successful relationships. In achieving growth for our clients and for Breakwater, integrity is the pivotal value—the connecting point between partnership and growth.
Breakwater does more than simply make capital investments in promising middle market businesses; it helps those businesses grow into market leaders. By working in close partnership with our portfolio companies, we invest in their future. We help them achieve accelerated and sustained business growth.
Partnership is our first Business Principle, reflecting that we are first and foremost a relationship-based firm. We extend the same partnership approach to the investors in our partnership funds, to our co-investors, and to the talented individuals who form part of our dedicated and highly effective team.
We constantly strive to support and accelerate the growth of our partners. Our goal is to achieve strong, sustained business growth for our portfolio companies, unrivalled growth for our investors through superior returns, and accelerated career growth for the talented members of our team.
Rapid growth is the result of Breakwater’s values in action.
