About Heartwood Partners

Heartwood Partners has been dedicated to investing in private companies for over 37 years, developing a well-established track record of supporting management teams to build and grow their companies, both organically and by add-on acquisition. You can learn more about Heartwood Partners at We are currently investing from a $600 million committed fund, Heartwood Partners Private Equity Income Fund III, LP. In addition, we have access to additional equity capital through co-investment from our limited partners. Our approach is designed for a longer-term investment horizon (our average investment period has been 5-7 years) and to capitalize portfolio businesses conservatively using significantly more equity and less debt than is typical in private equity investments. We do this to strengthen portfolio company balance sheets, create significant operating and bank covenant flexibility and perpetuate a business’ ability to pay a cash yield out of excess cash flow to shareholders and management.
