We are focused on global investment strategy. We generally seek to build a concentrated portfolio of scale investments in industries we know well and have developed significant expertise
Culture of transparency
We believe in sharing good (and bad) news early, aligning ourselves with our investors and companies, and truly partnering and empowering management teams. We also don’t charge transaction or monitoring fees to our portfolio companies (and haven’t since our founding)
Commitment to making companies better
We invest for the long haul to support the strategic and financial objectives of outstanding management teams. We believe our deep sector experience allows us to add value and offer insights that enable our companies to flourish.
Our investment philosophy is enhanced further by the depth of our focus on industry verticals. We have distinguished ourselves as a value-added partner with deep sector insights in select verticals which enables us to take a differentiated approach to sourcing, diligence, and value creation initiatives
We have a clear investment philosophy and disciplined approach to investing and have demonstrated performance across multiple investment cycles over our 10 years history
Venture Capital Finance Partners is committed to conducting business in a safe, responsible, and ethical manner. These principals guide our decision-making throughout the investment lifecycle.
From the onset of the investment process, we pursue ideas inspired by environmental, social, and governance (‘ESG’) issues and participate in industries engaged with these themes. All companies in which we invest are first vetted by our professionals, who work closely with expert advisors, to identify and mitigate potential ESG conflicts. Our ESG due diligence program requires an assessment of ten key ESG areas which may impact the current or future performance of a company. One Equity Partners will forego any investment that fails to meet its ESG standards.
Once invested, One Equity Partners reviews and monitors all its portfolio companies to ensure they adhere to its ESG policy, which is periodically reviewed to incorporate best practices as risks evolve. This process allows One Equity Partners to quickly detect and preempt or manage any difficulties that may arise during the investment period.
As investments mature, One Equity Partners seeks to continually improve upon ESG reviews and recommendations, and, together with management, works to ensure that ESG issues are prioritized through to and beyond exit.
Professionally managed investment portfolios
Time is a precious commodity. Researching investments in ever-changing markets and handling investment transactions are more than most people have time for. Venture Capital Finance's Asset Management Solutions program allows you to delegate the daily management of your assets and invest with confidence, knowing that your portfolio is in the hands of experienced professionals.
Different goals require different approaches.
At Venture Capital Finance we recognize that each investor is unique. That’s why we take a personalized approach to developing an asset management strategy by selecting investment portfolios that closely match your goals, tolerance for risk, and expectation for returns.

- Create opportunities for rewards while managing risk.
- Minimize management and administrative costs.
- Provide ongoing services that adapt to changes in your goals.

LIVE LONGER, BETTER.
What is long-term care? Long-term care is something that most people may not think they need, or might think is covered by health insurance or Medicare. The fact is, if you live to be 65, there's a 70% chance you'll eventually need some kind of long-term care.1 But aging isn't the only reason to plan for long-term care—it's there for you if a chronic illness or disabling injury prevents you from living on your own or properly caring for yourself, no matter how old you are. Long-term care helps with day-to-day tasks like bathing, eating, getting dressed, and getting in and out of bed. And it includes care provided by nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult day care centers, hospice facilities, and skilled nurses or home health aides in your (or your loved one's) home. If you're not the one who needs it, there's a good chance you'll need to help care for a loved one.2 And having a long-term care plan in place can help you continue to live well without sacrificing the income, investments, and savings you've worked so hard for.
