A private investment firm, The Vistria Group, recently announced a strategic minority investment by Hunter Point Capital and ADQ. Through this strategic alliance, Vistria will be able to accelerate its investment strategy by receiving long-term growth capital. There will be no changes to Vistria’s governance or day-to-day operations.
Marty Nesbitt, Co-Chairman & Co-CEO of The Vistria Group, commented, “This investment further validates our success to date and enables us to confidently double down on our approach. With growing proof in our investment thesis – that we can deliver attractive returns while achieving positive outcomes for our portfolio companies and the lives and livelihoods they support – we have laid the foundation for a sustainable franchise and are well-positioned for continued growth.”
The Vistria Group’s strategy is built around three pillars: operational excellence, investment expertise, and policy insights. The company was founded in 2013 and has grown its sector-focused strategy across healthcare, knowledge, and learning, and financial services, and now manages assets worth close to $9.5 billion. As middle-market companies seek strategic partners to navigate a constantly shifting landscape, these industries offer appealing long-term opportunities.
Kip Kirkpatrick, Vistria Co-Chairman & Co-CEO, said, “We are excited about the influx of permanent capital that will bolster our efforts to continue delivering meaningful impact and returns. We have been on an accelerated growth trajectory since The Vistria Group was founded nearly 10 years ago, and we remain committed to and confident in our approach.”
