Proven Process

Research-Driven Investing

Long Arc Capital is comprised of research-oriented, thematic investors with the flexibility, experience and preparation to be opportunistic. Their investment process has been developed over decades of private equity, operating and consulting experience across business cycles and company stages. It reflects learnings from both their successes as well as their failures.

Active Ownership

Alpha Creation

Long Arc believes as much alpha can be created through ownership as through investment selection. Every portfolio company works with a dedicated team at LAC to develop and execute an “Ownership Plan,” or roadmap to grow the business. Long Arc’s approach with companies is to help them grow as well as improve their odds of success by bringing to bear talent, experience and expertise from the team. This approach appeals to entrepreneurs and management teams seeking a like-minded, value-add investor.

Unified Culture

One Firm, One Portfolio

Long Arc strives for excellence through a culture of curiosity, collaboration, transparency and accountability. Correspondingly, Long Arc has developed a, “one firm, one portfolio” approach to its business. All Partners are involved in LAC portfolio companies when and as needed, ensuring their businesses benefit from the full suite of talent available at the firm. Incentives have been set to achieve alignment and ensure all employees operated as a unified team.
