Blue Marlin leverages the unique value that each Capital Partner brings — whether sourcing, due diligence, managing, or simply investing — to locate and evaluate direct investment opportunities and achieve profitable exits.
Acting on behalf of our Capital Partners, Blue Marlin organizes and manages the direct investing process. Blue Marlin and its Independent Investment Committee drive a rigorous and disciplined due diligence process before approving any opportunity. This is followed by active post-closing participation through board representation, management consultation, business improvement and active monitoring.
Blue Marlin targets investments in established, profitable lower middle market businesses with attractive valuations, obvious growth paths, and clear exit opportunities. Target investments will cover a range of industries and business verticals where Blue Marlin management, advisors, and Capital Partners possess substantive experience and expertise.
