Our advantage

At Rhône, we have cultivated a long standing and cohesive team with significant experience and tenure, balanced evenly across the Atlantic, providing homogeneous and seamless sourcing and execution capability. Our differentiated positioning and capabilities allow us to discreetly capitalize on opportunities that cannot be accessed or executed by country or regionally focused middle-market private equity firms. Our competitive advantage stems from our distinct sourcing capabilities together with our highly disciplined investment approach. 

Based on over two decades of global investment experience, we utilize our regimented investment strategy to identify and develop leading middle-market companies across the globe. We specialize in carve-out acquisitions and partnerships with founding families and entrepreneurs across sectors, with a focus on the business services, consumer, and industrial sectors.
