About Us

The Gates Family continues to build on its long tradition of growing private companies by investing with the world's top investment managers. We are patient, private partners who bring more than capital. We have experience starting companies and growing world-class international businesses.

We and our affiliates invest with the best managers across the public and private equity spectrum. While the majority of private equity investments are with venture capital and buyout managers, Gates Capital Partners (GCP) invests in other categories including distressed debt and secondaries. We seek exposure primarily to North America, but also to developed and emerging international markets.

Governed by its own experienced board of directors, GCP is dedicated to serving only Gates family trusts, family members and affiliates. The interests of these members are pooled in individual LLCs. The company strives to get to know managers over many years but is able to make investment decisions quickly and opportunistically. Once GCP invests with a manager we hope to back them over the course of multiple funds and many decades.
