FTV Capital helps entrepreneurs capitalize on the firm's industry connections, helping to accelerate sales cycles and drive growth.
FTV Capital was founded in 1998 as FTVentures, and built on the bedrock of some of the biggest names in the global financial services industry. These organizations are part of the firm's Global Partner Network-a group that, for more than a decade, has supported FTV portfolio companies.
Our founders, Jim Hale and Bob Huret, started FTV Capital after each spent several decades building successful careers with the industry's leading investment and commercial banking institutions. FTV Capital was born from the idea that the connections they formed over those years-with thousands of individuals across every business division at the world's most influential financial services companies-could make the difference for entrepreneurs with innovative offerings that serve this important market.
By leveraging our experience and close contacts at these institutions, we help talented management teams gain greater insight into the marketplace, and more quickly and effectively build sales traction within the financial services industry. We have direct access to global executives at some of the world's biggest names in financial services, who provide input on due diligence, market direction, growth opportunities and commercial interests related to our existing and potential portfolio companies.
