We are a global firm with a global portfolio and investor base.

    “A buyout firm that really does focus on operational improvements”

    The Firm executes a consistent investment strategy across North America and Europe, focusing on market-leading businesses in the business services, consumer/retail, financial services, healthcare, industrial, and technology sectors. CD&R has also established strategic relationships with Kedaara Capital Advisors LLP in India and Principle Capital in China, both operationally-oriented private investment firms which provide a lens into two of the world's most important growth markets.

    We invest in many globally diversified businesses. No matter where we are, the foundation of our strategy is to partner with management to create long-term, sustainable value. We are able to marshal global resources to help companies introduce new products and technology/business services, expand into new territories, execute productivity initiatives, pursue strategic M&A, tap into global financial markets, and execute other strategies to enhance business performance.
