In addition to investing in platform businesses through WSB & Company, our partners seek to co-invest alongside other sponsor groups through direct investments in acquisitions of strong, middle market businesses. We co-invest in identified deals with established private equity funds, “fund-less sponsors” seeking equity for a specific opportunity, search funds seeking additional equity, other family investment offices, and operators seeking to acquire and run a business. Our partners welcome investment opportunities alongside other smart, growth-oriented, partnership-focused investors.

WSB currently has nine co-investments in its portfolio.
