Why Providence?

Creative, Flexible & Patient Capital

Each investment is unique, and the team works diligently to tailor and deliver a capital solution that serves as a win-win for all stakeholders.  We have the flexibility to invest in  subordinated debt, unitranche debt, preferred equity, common equity, or some combination thereof.  We recognize success is not always linear, and patience may be required to work through unexpected challenges.

Focused on Lower Middle Market Companies in Texas and the Southwest

While flexible, our ideal investment includes both debt and equity in lower middle market companies ($2 to $10 million of EBITDA).  We invest with management teams, owners, independent sponsors, and funded sponsors.  We have spent most of our lives in the Southwest.  As a result, we have developed an extensive network in this region, which we offer to both management and owners to assist with value creation.

Trusted Relationships

Providence recognizes people are the key to success, and trust is critical to the success of a partnership.  From the initial meetings on, the team strives to build collegial, long-lasting relationships with owners and management.

Value-Add Partners

The team spends significant time upfront understanding the challenges and opportunities of a business and developing a roadmap to create value.  The Providence team applies its decades-long financial and operating experience with both large and small companies to be a value-add, collaborative partner.

Core Values


Teamwork permeates all our actions to focus on the best results.  We make real commitments, hold each other accountable, and engage in healthy debate to build trust with all our stakeholders. We are better together.


We believe that virtue matters.  Honesty, integrity, humility, and accountability govern our actions.  We do what we say.


We pursue excellence by holding ourselves and our partners to the highest standards.  We endeavor to be a trusted advisor and strive to exceed expectations. We are continuous learners.


Stewardship is core to our investment philosophy as we use our time, talent, and resources to bring value to our investors, portfolio companies, deal sources, teammates, vendors, and community. We are responsible managers of what has been entrusted to our care.


Our grit enables us to persevere in difficult circumstances to achieve our goals over the long term. We are disciplined and diligent.

The Meaning of Providence

Providence represents prudent and economic management that provides for the future and reflects God's sovereignty to continually uphold, guide, and care for His creation.

The colors are symbolic of the virtues we hold dear: courage and readiness to sacrifice (red); justice and perseverance (blue); and purity (white).

The star on our shield is a symbol of guidance and purpose.

The shield evokes our focus on downside protection.
