Founded in the early 80â€™s, Equus has been a leading private equity business development company. So what does that mean? It means they make investments in small companies, mostly private. Why? Because they believe the growth potential is greater in the small to mid-cap arena.
They hold their investment truths to be self evident. Their beliefs are supported by their 25 year history. Thatâ€™s right. They were a BDC long before it recently became a â€œhotâ€ investor category.
They invest in solid little guys before they get big. They look for small to mid-cap companies that are performance driven and just need time to hit their stride. They want portfolio companies that have good management, good earnings, market position and excellent growth potential.
