One Equity Partners' success has been built around a differentiated value creation method, a flexible ownership strategy, and a thoughtful approach to working in partnership with founders, families and other stakeholders.
One Equity Partners was founded in 2001 as the in-house private equity arm of Bank One, and from 2005 in the same capacity for JPMorgan. In January 2015 a spin-out was completed, establishing One Equity Partners as an independent management company.
Since inception, One Equity Partners has focused on creating value driven by transformative changes achieved through mergers of like-sized businesses. This strategy has been successfully executed in nearly 70% of our investments.
We make control-oriented investments with flexibility in ownership structure. Our ability to create favorable economics for owners who roll over equity to retain a significant minority stake makes One Equity Partners a preferred financial partner and helps ensure a steady flow of proprietary deal opportunities.
