Our mission is to create enduring value by:

  • Partnering with middle-market businesses with superior long-term prospects
  • Backing world-class management teams as they accelerate marketplace success
  • Managing financial risk in a responsible way
  • Cultivating an environment where people can achieve their potential

The Compass leadership team believes that if we can articulate a strong sense of purpose and use it to make decisions as well as strengthen motivation, then the shared value will drive performance.
