Liquidity Events. Growth Capital.

$7 million - $50 million junior capital solutions for leading middle market companies throughout North America.

Investment Guidelines

We opened our doors in 1997 to provide junior debt and minority equity to lower middle market companies, filling a capital gap.  While much has changed in the financial markets since then, our purpose has stayed the same:

Help business owners achieve their goals. 

We deliver by following our proven strategy:

  • View each business and situation as unique
  • Tailor flexible capital solutions to fit business owners’ needs
  • Support business owners as they operate and grow their businesses

After 20+ years and 6 funds, we remain an independent, employee-owned firm.  Check out what else has stayed the same vs. changed since 1997.

Same as 1997


Our foundation is built on strong relationships with management, intermediaries and our LPs.

Capital is not a Commodity

Every investment opportunity is unique, so we spend time to understand the nuances of the business, team and transaction.

Patient Investor

25+ years of business cycles have taught us that things don’t always go according to plan. We patiently work with management to support our portfolio companies’ changing needs.

Liquidity Without Ceding Control

Our solutions provide business owners with asset diversification without causing them to cede operating control.

Non-sponsored Deals

Show us your deals and we will structure solutions that meet business owners’ needs – and do the heavy lifting to achieve a quick and successful closing.

New Since 1997

Our Name

We changed our name from “Mezzanine” to “Structured Capital” to reflect the array of security structures we provide.
