Fund VI is Trivest’s twelfth overall fund, seventh institutional fund and fifth fund focused on founder/family-owned investments. Significant support from Trivest’s existing investors contributed to a streamlined and efficient fundraise. Fund VI includes a diversified mix of limited partners including endowments, corporate and public pensions, insurance companies, funds of funds, family offices and individuals. Additionally, the partners of Trivest have committed to invest substantial capital in Fund VI.
Over the past fifteen years, Trivest has asserted its position as the partner of choice for founder/family business owners across North America. Trivest has refined a disciplined strategy focused on investing in high quality, growth-oriented, lower middle market businesses.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of our fundraising efforts,” said Troy Templeton, Trivest’s Managing Partner. “It is clear that Trivest’s differentiated strategy is resonating with both business owners and limited partners.
