We couple our deep domain expertise with dedicated internal operating resources to transform and build great companies of lasting value in partnership with management.

THL invests in middle market growth companies, headquartered primarily in North America, exclusively in four sectors: Consumer, Financial Services, Healthcare and Technology & Business Solutions. We couple our deep domain expertise with dedicated internal operating resources to transform and build great companies of lasting value in partnership with management. Since 1974, we have raised more than $25 billion of equity capital, invested in over 150 companies and completed more than 400 add-on acquisitions representing an aggregate enterprise value at acquisition of over $200 billion.

Our firm is led by our Management Committee, which includes our Co-Presidents Tony DiNovi and Scott Sperling (who have been with THL for 33 and 25 years, respectively), Todd Abbrecht, our Head of Private Equity, who has been with THL for 25 years, and Tom Hagerty, who has been with THL for 33 years.

We benefit from a large and experienced team. Our 70+ professionals bring deep experience and an extensive network of executive relationships and corporate partnerships. Our 29 Managing Directors and Directors average over two decades of relevant experience. We believe this level of seniority, experience and continuity enhances our investment judgment and overall success.


Our Culture & Values

THL is built on a foundation of teamwork, open communication, honesty, respect and humility. We conduct business in a straightforward and transparent manner, working with management teams, investors and colleagues as true and responsible partners. Our collaborative culture is a point of differentiation and a key factor in our success. We are privately owned by our partners, who are also significant investors in our funds, aligning our interests with our limited partners and management teams. With a long-term view, we think and act as business owners, not just passive capital providers.


Our Investors

Our global investor base includes some of the world’s leading public and corporate pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, endowments and high net worth families. This diversified investor base is a valuable asset, providing additional co-investment capital as well as insight and relationships useful to our portfolio companies. The long-standing relationships we have with our investors are a cornerstone of our business model.


Our Funds

Since 2015, we have raised approximately $7 billion for our Flagship and our Automation strategies and $3.5 billion of LP Co-investment vehicles.
