White Wolf Capital celebrates its 10th Anniversary

The team at White Wolf Capital is pleased to be celebrating its 10th Anniversary.

September 1, 2021 – The team at White Wolf Capital (“White Wolf”) is pleased to be celebrating its 10th Anniversary. White Wolf was founded by Elie P. Azar, launching operations on September 1, 2011.  From its modest start in a one-room office in midtown Manhattan, White Wolf has grown into a comprehensive capital management firm that has completed 40 transactions including multiple platforms, add-on acquisitions, and financings.  While focusing on private equity for most of its first decade, earlier this year White Wolf recruited four outstanding credit professionals and launched its private credit strategy out of Chicago.  Shortly after launching the private credit investment strategy, White Wolf closed its first debt transaction in July 2021.  In addition, White Wolf expanded its Canadian operations in January 2021 and by year-end will have closed on two additional Canadian acquisitions.  In early 2014, the firm’s headquarters relocated to Miami and the team now stands at 18 full-time professionals located across several cities and two countries (the U.S. and Canada).

When asked what they perceive as unique about White Wolf, our investors overwhelmingly call out two distinguishing features of the firm: discipline and partnership.  White Wolf’s aperture has been focused rigorously on middle-market opportunities in the manufacturing, staffing, infrastructure, and aerospace and defense sectors.  White Wolf’s commitment to partnership is rooted in our founder’s deep commitment to engaging with all our portfolio company principals—founders, owners, and management teams—on a genuinely equal footing to better align interests and optimize value creation throughout the entire hold period of our investments.

Our team continues to operate with the same level of intensity, tenacity and standards of excellence that have characterized our firm for the past decade.  White Wolf is totally committed to driving outstanding results for our investors and we look forward to continued success and growth over the next decade and beyond.
