Founded in 1998, Quantum Energy Partners is a leading provider of private equity capital to the global energy industry, having managed together with its affiliates, more than $6.5 billion in equity commitments since inception. We invest across the energy value chain with a particular emphasis on the oil and gas upstream, midstream, oil field service and power generation sectors.
Quantum targets private equity investment opportunities that range from $200 million to $2 billion in enterprise value per transaction. We make early stage startup investments as well as later stage growth capital and buyout investments.
Quantum’s investment philosophy is grounded in a true respect for the technical, operating and commercial aspects of the energy business. Therefore our investment team is comprised of not only individuals possessing financial expertise, but also professionals possessing technical and operating expertise and individuals who have actually run their own private energy company or a division of a large public energy company. Our multi-disciplinary investment team enhances our investment decision making process as well as enables us to be a more knowledgeable, supportive and value-added partner for the energy industry’s top entrepreneurs.
We seek to partner with management teams that have a track record in building successful companies, have a focused and targeted business plan, demonstrate a sustainable competitive advantage, have the expertise and experience to manage a fast growing enterprise and that are truly seeking a value-added private equity partner.
Currently, Quantum has portfolio companies operating in the U.S., Canada, and Europe that are engaged in multiple sectors and strategies within the energy industry.
