Private Equity

The Private Equity team at Sovereign’s Capital is focused on partnering with business leaders in the forward stewardship of their companies.

The Private Equity team partners with leaders of privately held businesses, seeking thriving cultures and positive spiritual impact. These businesses benefit from attractive industry dynamics and strong secular tailwinds. We have flexibility to design a solution that matches the specific objectives of the owner, and we do that work in a collaborative fashion. At times we can structure extended hold periods to promote long-term value creation. As committed partners, we work to deliver excellent investment performance, focusing on operational improvements, smart organic growth, and acquisition opportunities. Above all we seek to practice faithfulness as we shepherd the resources that God has entrusted us to help leaders preserve and expand positive, faith-driven impact.


Our investment team is made up of operators with industry and regional expertise.

What we look for

Team First

We partner with people first. We work hard to understand the vision that each business leader has for creating extraordinary value for all stakeholders well into the future.

Defensible Differentiators

We partner with companies that have economic moats. They have an edge based on operational excellence, technological barriers, long-term customer relationships, dominant market share, or other sustainable competitive advantages.

Growth Focus

We partner with leaders seeking expanded impact. We are growth-minded and invest in companies with highly scalable business models.

Thriving Culture

We partner with leaders who view culture as a competitive advantage. Our leaders take pride in and have evidence of cultures that delight all stakeholders – employees, families, customers, vendors, and others.

Consistent Performance

We partner with businesses that have sustained results. These companies have proven track records of financial success, with the strategic and operational focus to maintain results for the long term.

Portfolio Companies

These logos represent all portfolio companies for this strategy.


For us, having Sovereign's Capital as a partner was a game changer as we prepared for a larger exit. The amount of wisdom and guidance we received was invaluable. I would absolutely partner with them again.

Sovereign’s Capital sets the bar when it comes to private capital partners.  They have an incredibly talented team, and the faith alignment element is real!  I’m sure many firms talk about faith or core principles, but Sovereign’s Capital is made up of authentic followers of Christ. They are not only industry experts but true friends, and it’s been a privilege and honor to partner with them.
