We've got an expansive network of resources

No one has all the answers. When we don't, we know who does.

We've got a deep bench

We've been fortunate to have helped dozens of companies in a diverse set of industries. And, from time to time, we've needed to bring in other players to fill a gap in what our clients need. We're always upfront about these relationships and you can rest assured that we know the people and systems we'll engage on your behalf. 

Our reputation is critical to our ongoing success and we realize that what our partners do is a reflection on us. We've worked with all of the resources below, up close and personal. If we didn't trust them, you'd never meet them. 

The sections below will outline what we do and how we do it. When we're talking about a specific outside resource, we'll identify them and either engage them on your behalf or connect you to the right resource.

Family Office Direct Investment Services

FODIS provides assistance to family business holding companies, family businesses, single-family offices, and ultra-high net worth individual investors related to direct investments into operating businesses. For investors or operating businesses, seeking new operating business direct investments or acquisitions, FODIS uses its proprietary data-driven intelligence resource platform to enable complex analytics, narrowing direct investment target searches, and originating opportunities on a non-auction, privately negotiated basis.

For family businesses seeking capital to strengthen their balance sheets prior to growth or acquisition phases, FODIS can arrange capital commitments from private families rather than private equity funds. Through its Senior Managing Directors, FODIS can also provide governance, strategy development and growth implementation support to enhance the financial performance of operating businesses.

FODIS provides our clients with:

  • Increased speed and capabilities due to scale
  • Access to skills beyond strategic marketing
  • Originating proprietary business acquisitions and direct investments
  • Access to long-term private, patient family capital
  • Various services to enhance financial performance and governance of operating businesses
