Patient Capital to Create Long-Term Value
Our deep sector expertise and unique capital structure enable us to be focused, patient, long-term investors.
We invest in four global sectors that continue to be shaped by technology and innovation. By specializing in these sectors, we develop and capitalize on disruptive themes that create unique investment opportunities globally.
Applying our deep sector expertise, robust global network, and pattern recognition, we identify and aim to partner with promising entrepreneurs that are poised to become future market leaders.
Partnerships that change outcomes
We seek to build enduring partnerships with our portfolio companies, reinforced by our stable, flexible capital program. To create long-term value that is essential to growth investing, we aim to be an active lead investor with significant minority ownership, working with management teams to meaningfully change outcomes.
Our stable and patient capital base
Unlike traditional private equity funds, General Atlantic’s unique structure provides a more stable capital base that enables us to invest patiently and independent of fundraising cycles. Our capital base is largely composed of entrepreneurial and philanthropic families, reinforcing our long-term approach. To ensure a strong alignment of interests, our collective General Atlantic team represents 8% of our capital base — the single largest commitment.
