Approach


Hudson Pacific Principals and Advisors have significant experience building businesses across a range of industries and transaction types. We target companies that are constrained from realizing their full potential, and we seek opportunities to work collaboratively with management to build value by implementing strategic and operational change.

 

We are also able to tap our extensive network of operational managers and advisors when there is a need to augment management teams.

 

Our returns are driven by helping businesses improve rather than by financial engineering. While we rely on management to run businesses, we often find that our experience and access to expert resources helps accelerate and support the strategic and operational transition process.

 

As an independent firm we have the freedom to tailor structures to fit the needs of each situation. We use that flexibility to provide creative, customized solutions to address the capital needs of complicated transactions. Our investments are structured to facilitate objectives across many constituents, including sellers, on-going owners, co-investors and management teams.
