Central to HPA's Investment approach is a focus on providing management and operational support to our Portfolio investments. The small company market is predominated by founder or family-owned and operated businesses. While usually profitable, these business may not be performing to their full potential and can often benefit from the proven resources and management guidance provided by HPA .More often, the companies are well-run but the founder are the ones selling the business and, therefore, will be leaving a management gap upon concluding a sale.
