Industry Expertise

Media

Our team has extensive experience as operators and investors in media. This experience spans more than four decades and numerous industry cycles. We benefit from a deep relationship network, which enables us to source proprietary investments. Our investment focus includes distribution, communications infrastructure, content, equipment and services. We are focused on finding value in sub-sectors that are undergoing actual or perceived dislocations caused by new technologies, changing consumer preferences and economic cycles. We also seek to invest in companies that will be direct or indirect beneficiaries of growing data, video and communications consumption.

Financial Services

We believe Crestview is uniquely positioned in the financial services industry. We combine extensive operating experience with a deep relationship network to source proprietary investments and add value. The team focuses on asset and wealth management, insurance, capital markets, banking and finance sectors. We have successfully invested across cycles and seek to capitalize on market dislocations arising from periodic supply/demand imbalances. Ongoing regulatory and capital pressures are also creating opportunities across the sector, particularly for structured asset carve-outs and start-ups, where our team has a great deal of experience.

Energy

We pursue investments in exploration and production, oilfield services and commodity marketing and logistics sectors. Long-term supply/demand dynamics as well as improvements in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technology drive our focus on unconventional oil and gas resource plays. Our blend of broad investment experience coupled with more than three decades of operating expertise between our partners and senior advisors gives us an advantage in sourcing, evaluating and managing our energy investments.

Industrials

Our team and senior advisors have a long history of operating and investing in industrial companies. We pursue industrial and industrial services businesses that we believe are well positioned to deliver growth rates in excess of cyclical trends due to their competitive advantages. We believe that the interconnected and dynamic global manufacturing environment creates significant opportunities for companies that stand to benefit from this fast changing industrial landscape. We have proven experience working with management teams to take advantage of these trends and to expand their businesses globally.
