Hudson Ferry is pursuing acquisitions of established privately-owned businesses that differentiate themselves through product and process innovation in stable or evolving markets and that generate strong cash flow and consistent revenue growth. The partners of Hudson Ferry have successfully invested in these types of companies over the last two decades. The firm has $165 million of capital under management and makes investments through its second fund, Hudson Ferry Capital II, L.P. HFC II has been organized as a Small Business Investment Company in order to avail itself of long term, low cost funding though the small business administration.
Adding value beyond simply providing capital is the guiding principle for Hudson Ferry as an investment partner. Hudson Ferry will continue to partner with the management teams of its portfolio companies and provide them with the resources and guidance needed to build entrepreneurial businesses into large, professionally-managed organizations. Additionally, Hudson Ferry draws upon the experience of a team of senior executives with whom the partners have worked closely in the past. These Operating Partners have extensive experience in the sectors that are a focus of the fund and are a valuable resource available to assist portfolio company managers in attaining strategic goals.
