OUR
APPROACH

Since forming ASH Ventures, we have invested $75M of equity capital and grown the value of our investments to over $200M.

Our unique approach is anchored in our firm’s investment charter and execution capabilities.

INVESTMENT
CHARTER

Our investment charter requires us to be masterful capital allocators for the firm to sustain itself.

Zero Fund Fees

Each investment must generate both annual cash distributions, which helps us fund the firm, and long-term value creation, which we believe is best achieved without a pre-defined exit timeframe.

Unhurried Approach

ASH Ventures favors structures that enable us to be patient with portfolio companies, thereby eliminating the need for costly financial engineering or a premature exit.

Aligned Capital

We so believe in our ventures that we invest our own capital alongside our investment partners in every acquisition. ASH Ventures only survives if its investments succeed, which reinforces our alignment with all stakeholders. The majority of ASH Ventures personal assets are committed to the portfolio.

Single Purpose Entities

We have no multi-entity funds, so investors have flexibility to participate in the investments of their choosing. Each investment stands on its own.

EXECUTION
CAPABILITIES

Our execution capabilities, learned over many years running businesses, allow us to make the most of
every investment while reducing risk along the way.

Discover Differentiated Businesses that Participate in Relatively Large Profit Pools

Because of our experience, we can identify businesses capable of differentiation with one or more of the following traits: an innovative mindset, high client satisfaction and employee engagement, and strong sales/distribution capabilities.

Identify Actionable Metrics that Drive Sustainable Profit Growth

We take the time to strategically build and then execute a road map alongside our management partners. Our operational experience informs the specific, actionable metrics chosen as drivers. It also informs the process design to prioritize and improve within each metric, which ultimately means sustainable profit growth.

Get at the Heart of Value Creation

Our operational experience informs how we get to the heart of value creation within companies. We do not bank on exit strategies to justify the thesis of any investment, but we do believe our execution capabilities can increase the multiples of businesses, as our experience and track record have proven.

Apply an Extensive Global Network to our Management-Centric Philosophy

With strong governance but minimal bureaucracy, we forge a deep partnership with management teams. ASH Ventures also leverages our extensive network and resources in service of our operating partners which equips and allows them to “own” their businesses.
