FFL was formed in 1997 to invest in middle-market companies where the substantial strategic and operating expertise of FFL's principals can help management improve margins, make acquisitions and grow earnings. Our capital comes largely from US and international institutions: public and private pension funds, endowments, foundations and financial institutions.
FFL has invested prudently for more than a decade, partnering with strong management teams and other investors to establish a leading track record in middle-market private equity investing. We have produced attractive returns for our investors through up and down markets and across a range of industries by patiently focusing our efforts on good businesses with attractive returns on capital and strong growth prospects.
FFL is currently committing $50-200 million to individual transactions out of a $1.5 billion fund raised in 2008.
