Welcome to Morningside Private Investors

Morningside Private Investors was founded in 1987 with the backing of the Chan family to invest in privately held businesses. Since our founding, our approach has been to partner financially with growing manufacturing, service and distribution businesses undergoing ownership transition or industry change.


We make long-term investments in companies that are in an ownership transition or experiencing industry change.

We look for companies with defensible, competitive barriers in their markets, and where business growth and equity value creation opportunities are possible through product/service/geographic expansion or through add-on acquisitions.

INVESTment criteria

We have committed capital and are currently searching for new opportunities that fit our criteria.

We will also consider investments outside of these focus areas and in different end markets based upon a review and clear understanding of the investment thesis supporting the proposed investments.

the Morningside difference

  • Permanent capital structure means we don’t have to realize investments quickly in order to show investment returns for fund raising
  • Substantial investment by the principals in the same securities as management aligns all interests

  • Recapitalize our portfolio companies with low leverage

  • Don’t count on timing the top of an economic cycle to generate great investment result
  • Focus on capital gains, not current income
  • Don’t charge fees or expenses
