But you need the patience—and discipline—to find it.

Kain is an investment firm that acquires stakes in businesses facing operational, strategic or financial inflection points. We leverage our internal network to spot and seize on opportunities that are often too small or too complicated for large private equity funds.

Once we have identified that one, great idea, we sharpen it with meticulous research. Sometimes it can take more than a year for us to evaluate an opportunity properly. To realize the maximum value in each investment, we dedicate our time and internal capital to building new business capabilities—translating a good idea into a successful product, service and portfolio company.

This patient approach to investing enables us to focus on long-term growth without being tied to a specific return horizon.
