Private Equity

Our investments include minority and control positions, growth and expansion capital, and recapitalizations.

We believe that our deep roots in the community and our long term vision and investment horizon make us a unique capital partner.

Our guiding philosophy places value on the continuity of a company’s culture and its commitment to its employees and the community. TCG prides itself on being a good steward of the businesses we invest in and as a contributing member of Hawaii’s business community.

We typically target companies with EBITDA of $1 million to $10 million, ideally with an established and defensible market position, unique or proprietary products or services, or cost advantages.

We tend to be passive investors but can assist in many areas due to our broad reach in the community.
