Our most recent fund, Industrial Growth Partners V, L.P., is an $800 million “blind” pool of capital, over which the Partners of IGP have full investment discretion. No outside or third-party consents are required in order to proceed with an investment.

Our Investors — We believe that our blue-chip base of Limited Partners, which includes many leading foundations, endowments, trusts and pension plans, is a key differentiator. These investors provide not only patient capital, but also unique access to business and industry knowledge within their organizations. Several Fortune 500 industrial companies, through their respective pension plans, have invested in IGP, and we have been able to tap into their knowledge and expertise in a way that few, if any, comparable private equity investment firms can match. This network helps IGP identify and diligence potential new investments, in addition to providing yet another resource for company management teams.

Our Network — IGP has solid relationships with numerous commercial banks, institutional financing firms, insurance companies, mezzanine groups and investment banks. These relationships extend back as much as two decades and are a critical aspect of ensuring a stable capital base for the businesses in which IGP invests. Since 1991, no transaction on which we have embarked has failed to close due to lack of financing.

Our Approach — We typically employ demonstrably lower leverage than that of our private equity peers. As a result of our lower leverage philosophy, we had no credit defaults in our portfolio during the recession of 2008-2010 and we have never had a bankruptcy in the history of the firm.
