About us

Our approach

 

We are a Canadian-based private equity firm that makes
equity investments in middle market private and public
companies throughout North America.

 

At Banyan, we approach each investment as a partnership rather than an
outright acquisition of your business.

Unlike other traditional private equity firms, we have the ability to hold our investments indefinitely and are not constrained by the investment parameters of typical closed-end funds. As a result, we are flexible, patient and
work efficiently.

We believe the key to every successful investment begins with strong relationships, mutual alignment and culturally compatibility between ourselves and the founder, business owner, management team and partners we invest alongside.

With significant experience in private equity, investment banking and operations, we have developed into one of Canada’s leading middle market private equity firms with an established track record of success in providing full or partial liquidity to founders, families and entrepreneurs and helping them take their business to the
next level.

Founded in 1998 and under its current management since 2008, Banyan has acquired equity interests in 20 companies.

Banyan is part of Connor, Clark & Lunn Financial Group Ltd., an independently owned multi-boutique asset management firm whose affiliates are collectively responsible for over $100 billion in assets under management on behalf of institutional, private and retail clients.

Why we are called Banyan

The Banyan tree symbolizes strength and longevity. Its growth is legendary and over its
lifetime can grow from a single trunk into an entire forest.

 

Like its namesake, BANYAN CAPITAL PARTNERS® has become a symbol of business
strength, longevity and growth in North America.
