Trivest Announces Strategic Minority Investment by Bonaccord

MIAMI — Trivest Partners (“Trivest” or “the Firm”), a leading private equity firm focused exclusively on founder and family-owned businesses, today announces that Bonaccord Capital Partners (“Bonaccord”) has acquired a passive minority equity interest in the firm.  Bonaccord, a subsidiary of P10, Inc., is a private equity platform dedicated to acquiring non-control equity interests in leading mid-sized private market sponsors.

The transaction will provide capital to allow Trivest to continue to invest in its employees and growth initiatives while having no impact on the day-to-day management of the firm. As the equity interest is non-voting, the firm’s investment and decision-making processes will remain unchanged. Additional terms of the investment were not disclosed.

Founded in 1981 and based in Coral Gables, Florida, Trivest is the oldest private equity firm in the Southeastern United States. With approximately $2.5 billion in assets under management across three strategies, the Firm has become a premier platform focused exclusively on the support and growth of founder and family-owned businesses throughout the United States and Canada within the middle market.    

“This transaction allows us to build a capital base to continue to invest in our employees and be significant investors across our platform. We find Bonaccord’s strategic approach and similar culture to represent the ideal profile as a long-term partner in supporting our firm. This investment is also a great opportunity for us to expand our long-standing relationship with P10 and its affiliates. We look forward to our partnership with Bonaccord as we continue to grow,” said Troy Templeton, Managing Partner of Trivest Partners. 

“Trivest has established a best-in-class platform focusing on founder and family-owned businesses.  Their reputation, investment approach and exceptional track record of returns to investors positions them well for continued long-term success. We are excited to deepen our relationship with Trivest through this strategic investment and look forward to our partnership in the coming years,” said Ajay Chitkara, Managing Partner of Bonaccord.

Berkshire Global Advisors advised Trivest on the transaction. Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as legal counsel to Trivest. Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP served as legal counsel to Bonaccord.
