Founded in 2015, Valterra Partners is New York-based private investment firm that provides partnership capital to lower middle market companies with compelling growth prospects.

Core to Valterra’s investment philosophy is that our involvement is viewed as a partnership with existing stakeholders of the business and that our capital is used primarily as a catalyst to unlock growth. 

Valterra traces its roots back to 2006 when the partners began investing together as part of Macquarie Bank’s (ASX:NQG) US-based merchant banking division. While at Macquarie, the partners invested $500 million of the bank’s balance sheet capital into growth equity opportunities as part of a larger $1 billion US portfolio. In late 2014, the partners spun out of Macquarie on favorable terms and founded Valterra Partners to independently pursue growth equity opportunities.
