Access Holdings Welcome's Matt McLain
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
Over the decades of shared business building and investment experience, we have developed core values that guide our actions:
Providing clear and uninterrupted information for our teams, investors, and partners
Investing the time to prepare; every interaction matters
Moving intentionally with discipline
Driving results through a concentrated portfolio
Effectively communicating with team members, investors and business partners
Establishing and upholding firm-wide accountability standards
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:
We look for services and businesses that benefit from macro and structural trends, including demographic demand, compliance, and changing social behavior.
We pursue fundamentally sound business models, that deliver outstanding customer value, predictability, strong free cash flow margins, and operating leverage.
We partner with or recruit best-in-class executive teams with exceptional leadership, communication skills, and a track record of delivering significant value.
Aligned Value Creation Strategy
We uncover opportunities that are positioned to outperform or are overlooked by the broader investment community.
