our story
After decades in the Private Equity industry, we gathered our collective perspectives and founded Access Holdings based on the following principles:

  • Buy Businesses We Want To Own Versus Those That Are For Sale SM

  • Operate a concentrated portfolio (5-7 platforms per fund)

  • Execute a buy and build strategy

  • Focus on essential service based businesses

  • Leverage and deploy contemporary technology to enhance portfolio operations and the customer experience

  • Partner with owners and entrepreneurs who are engaged and have significant economic alignment

  • Work with people we like

Values
Over the decades of shared business building and investment experience, we have developed core values that guide our actions:

  • Transparency

    Providing clear and uninterrupted information for our teams, investors, and partners

  • Preparation

    Investing the time to prepare; every interaction matters

  • Purpose

    Moving intentionally with discipline

  • Focus

    Driving results through a concentrated portfolio

  • Communication

    Effectively communicating with team members, investors and business partners

  • Integrity

    Establishing and upholding firm-wide accountability standards

Strategy

We acquire platforms in niche essential service based industries that are positioned to outperform — and often overlooked and off the radar of other investors. Our companies have clear and quantifiable value propositions and are poised to emerge as market leaders.

At the highest level, here's what we look for:
