Our Focus

Helping investors navigate a unique market

The lower middle market is inefficient and fragmented. It’s also a vast, critical force in the North American economy. For more than two decades, small buyouts have been our singular focus, and we’ve helped investors navigate this market successfully, generating compelling returns across multiple economic and market cycles.

The team at RCP invested in getting to know MPE Partners years before they became an investor; they tracked our progress and offered helpful advice along the way.  When they decided to invest, the folks at RCP were prepared to move quickly and with conviction. Today our relationship with RCP includes primary, secondary, and co-investment partnerships.  RCP also provides us with thoughtful insights for our ESG program.
