Architect Equity

A mutually aligned investment approach.

Architect takes a solution-oriented approach to solve for complex, unique, or fast moving situations. This problem solving approach is also applicable to the businesses that become part of the Architect portfolio where companies are often in need of a creative, yet focused, investment partner to achieve their full potential.
Architect invests in businesses that have a sustainable competitive advantage due to mission critical products and services or strong brand loyalty.  Frequently these companies are undergoing a transition phase arising from ownership matters that can benefit from a new partner to drive transformation or accelerated growth.  Through our process-driven investment approach and focused operating strategy, we strive to unlock inherent value in partnership with our management teams.
Architect seeks business with upside potential, whether it be through entering new markets, adding complimentary products or services, or exploring add-on acquisitions with our dedicated business development team. We are rigorous in the development of meaningful and coherent business strategy with our management teams, and we provide operational support to enable leadership to execute on their long-term plan.

Architect’s investment model is built on pursuing businesses that are operating in under-served markets or are experiencing transition challenges that can benefit from new, focused ownership. Our fundamental goal is to provide seamless liquidity solutions to existing shareholders on an expedited basis, while keeping management teams focused on creating value for the companies they lead and manage.
Architect’s partnership approach is designed to create win-win outcomes to ensure the interests of selling shareholders, management teams, and Architect are aligned to build long-term value.
