MDP’s objective is to invest in companies in partnership with outstanding management teams to achieve significant long-term appreciation in equity value. A flexible investment approach, encompassing both management buyouts and structured minority investments, has been a key tenet to MDP’s investment philosophy for several decades.
MDP’s founders adopted an industry focused investment approach over 30 years ago, and the firm has six dedicated teams that have long and successful track records of investing in their respective sectors.
