History as a Competitive Edge

History as a Competitive Edge

The reinvention of The Hillman Company that began with Henry Hillman’s early endorsement of private equity as a new industry continued as the investment landscape changed in the 1990s and 2000s. The company successfully transitioned not only to indirect investing through private equity funds but also to co-investing, and in recent years its investment activity is generally limited to investing in the world’s top private equity firms and co-investing with those firms when the opportunity arises. Hillman sources and develops relationships with private equity funds around the globe—and to these relationships it brings a multi-generational legacy of accumulated deal expertise … 125+ years of successful investment activity.
