About HCM

A New York-based asset management firm focused on growth equity investments.

We seek to partner with strong, like-minded management teams in sectors where we have expertise and can serve as value-add shareholders.

Through our initial private equity investment vehicle, we believe our strategy of being patient, long-term investors provides us with opportunities to deploy capital in situations where we are structurally positioned to generate strong risk-adjusted returns and significant long-term value creation on behalf of our Limited Partners.
