Redwood Capital is the private investment company for Jim Davis, a co-founder of Allegis Group, the largest staffing company in the United States. We invest in privately-held businesses to build long-term value in alignment with our business partners.
Our permanent capital base allows us to offer a unique partnership. We do not underwrite investments with an eye toward exit. Instead, we focus on creating value through compounded earnings growth over long time horizons. We have a small team, make quick decisions, and develop creative investment structures to suit the particular needs of companies, business owners and management teams.
We look for businesses with the following characteristics:
- Understandable and durable business model with a proven earnings track record
- Strong market position with sustainable competitive advantages
- Established, in-place management team
- Opportunities to reinvest earnings or deploy additional capital into the business
In addition to our investments in private businesses, we invest in real estate, infrastructure and marketable securities on an opportunistic basis.
