Ziegler invests in private companies and funds, and sponsors private equity funds in growth-oriented, middle market companies through its proprietary investments and fund management group. Ziegler invests in targeted sectors within the healthcare, senior living and education sectors.
Since 2000, Ziegler has sponsored 19 funds representing over $300 million of committed equity capital, has invested over $5 million in 12 privately held companies, and has invested over $12 million in private equity funds, some of which Ziegler sponsored. We seek to sponsor funds with investment policies reflective of our targeted industry sectors, and we seek to invest in companies, private equity funds, and management teams where we can provide strategic value through our investment banking and corporate finance teams or through our industry knowledge and connections.
From the beginning, we have been in business to generate a positive impact on the communities we serve. By investing in funds and emerging, private companies in the healthcare, senior living, and education sectors, we are furthering that mission by helping companies build technologies and services that will shape the future of healthcare, aging, and learning.
