For over 25 years, we have been investing in people who are passionate about their businesses and are leading operators within their fields. We've raised more than $19 billion in aggregate capital commitments to invest in 100+ companies across 12 active verticals and 70+ sub-sectors.
The investment activities of the firm are led by Chuck Davis, Steve Friedman, Jim Carey, David Wermuth and Nick Zerbib. This senior management team is supported by approximately 50 investment professionals, operating partners and senior advisors who bring to Stone Point Capital considerable experience from other leading private equity, investment banking, financial services, corporate law and accounting firms.
Stone Point Capital is the manager of the Trident Funds and is currently investing out of Trident VII, a $5.5 billion fund raised in 2017. Prior funds include:
Additionally, from 1985 to 1993, Stone Point’s predecessor operations originated seven investments in which its corporate sponsor invested $136 million, and approximately $1.3 billion was raised from co-investors.
We seek to make investments in 12 major verticals of the financial services industry, and believe our specialized sector knowledge and domain expertise to be a significant driver of value in our investments.
We partner with management teams across all stages of their businesses, and we offer extensive support to build exceptional companies together.
We generally target equity investments of between $50 million and $500 million, but we have the ability to make smaller and significantly larger investments.
We strive to align interests with our portfolio companies' management teams and are flexible in structuring our ownership stakes, which range from minority to majority positions.
We are patient investors geared for the long term. Our investment horizon varies by investment and spans five to 10+ years.
We use leverage judiciously and when appropriate for the lifecycle stage and strategic direction of the company.
