Our Genesis

Royal Ascot Partners is a unique private equity group launched in 2008 to facilitate direct private equity investments in lower-middle market companies, exclusively in partnership with HNW Families

Our Mission

To provide superior, lower cost, transparent full-cycle direct investment support to HNW Families who desire more direct control in a disciplined process to grow their wealth through building, operating and selling assets in the framework of a diversified portfolio of private operating companies.

Collaboration is our cornerstone. We work closely with Families and management teams to define success and create a sustainable road map for growth. Growth and value creation are not always predictable or linear, so we review and refine strategies and tactics as necessary. With the strategic road map as the backdrop, we help build teams, advise on resource allocation, and pursue bolt on opportunities.

Our Motivation

What we have built marries the lower-middle market with both Wall Street and Main Street.  We lean on our experience in high tech start-ups, Wall Street banking, turn-arounds, non-profit, Family office, real estate development, and private equity to be collaborative, selfless problem-solvers who care about legacy.

We are a team of highly-experienced men and women from diverse walks of life who have excelled in vastly-diverse disciplines.  We have depth of experiences in a wide variety of disciplines ranging from  entrepreneurship, capital markets, engineering, data analytics and executive leadership to academia.  We are well-traveled; highly-adaptive, team-oriented, highly competitive, and can shift.

Ultimately we share a common vision and value system, believe in equality and fairness, and check our egos at the door.  We share DNA with entrepreneurs, sit shoulder-to-shoulder with each other and our stakeholders, and can execute at the speed of light.

Our Mantra

“It is not the critic who counts; nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

– President Theodore Roosevelt (1910), Sarbonne University, Paris, France
