Company Details

Wasserstein & Co. is an independent private equity and investment firm, with offices in New York and Los Angeles. The firm was formed in January 2001, when the merchant banking group of Wasserstein Perella & Co., Inc., a global investment banking firm, spun out to become an independent firm upon the acquisition of the remainder of Wasserstein Perella by Dresdner Bank.

Today, the firm manages approximately $2 billion of capital on behalf of institutional and individual investors, including public and corporate pension funds, foreign governmental entities, endowments and foundations and high net worth individuals. Our investment activities are focused on middle-market leveraged buyout investments and related investment activities. Wasserstein & Co. also manages a significant portfolio of debt and equity securities and other investments on behalf of our stockholders and other investors.

We conduct our buyout investment activities through the Wasserstein Partners family of funds. Predecessor funds, U.S. Equity Partners I and II, were raised in 1997 and 2002 and invested approximately $750 million of committed equity capital.

We target investments of between $30 million and $150 million. While our focus is primarily on control equity investments, we have invested successfully across the entire capital structure spectrum, taking positions in preferred stock and various debt securities with compelling risk / return profiles.
