Platinum Equity Small Cap

Large Cap Resources. Small Cap Focus. $1.5 Billion Fund.

Founded by Tom Gores, Platinum Equity's resources and access to capital have grown over more than 20 years, but the firm’s focus on investing in the lower middle market has never wavered.

A New Fund with a Proven Approach

In June of 2018 the firm cemented its commitment to the lower middle market and closed Platinum Equity Small Cap Fund with $1.5 billion in capital commitments. Platinum Equity Small Cap focuses exclusively on the lower middle market, complementing the firm’s flagship $6.5 billion Platinum Equity Capital Partners IV, which is focused on larger transactions.

With the Small Cap Fund, dedicated M&A professionals in North America and Europe, the Platinum Equity operations teams and the firm’s 20+ year track record of transacting in the space, the Small Cap team at Platinum Equity is able to deliver value and creative transaction solutions.
