The World's Leading Global Growth Investor
General Atlantic is a leading global growth equity firm providing capital and strategic support for growth companies. We combine a collaborative global approach, sector-specific expertise, and a deep understanding of growth drivers to partner with great management and build exceptional businesses worldwide.
General Atlantic manages $17 billion in capital, investing between $50 million and $400 million as a minority or majority investor in private and public companies. On average, GA invests in 12 - 15 companies per year.
As a growth investor for over three decades, GA consistently generates long-term, superior returns by investing in and working with strong management to build outstanding companies. Our unique long-term capital structure affords us the flexibility to function as strategic, active and long-term partners for management, helping to strengthen and grow each business to its fullest potential.
GA's heritage and investment approach make us unique in the industry. We were founded in 1980 as a private investment firm to invest the funds of the Atlantic Philanthropies established by Chuck Feeney, a global entrepreneur and one of the world's most notable living philanthropists. Since then we have added several ultra-high net worth families, endowments and foundations as our capital partners who share Chuck's philosophy of investing for the long-term, building great businesses and making a difference in the world. It is from this heritage that GA has grown into the leading global growth equity firm.
Through the skills, knowledge, and experience of our professionals, our global presence and network, our unique and substantial capital base, and our commitment to a value-based culture of excellence, General Atlantic has built a sterling reputation as a strong partner to management helping growth companies grow.
"General Atlantic provides strategic assistance to propel IBS to the next phase of its aggressive growth strategy. We are very excited about this partnership."
