Global Partner Network

FTV’s Global Partner Network delivers a decisive difference for driving growth. Comprised of many of the world’s leading financial services companies (many who are or have been investors in our funds) and more than 200 individual investors from our investment focus areas, this network provides superior access to sector-specific knowledge, deep operational acumen and vast professional networks built by our partners over decades.

Our portfolio companies benefit from our Global Partner Network via access to:

  • Invaluable market feedback
  • Blue-chip vetting and validation
  • Commercial introductions that help accelerate sales cycles

Executives in the Global Partner Network derive benefit through:

  • Direct access to FTV sector experts who can provide enhanced market intelligence in sectors of interest
  • Access to potential commercial solutions through FTV portfolio company introductions
  • Industry networking at the FTV Annual Partner Conference, Strategic Advisory Board meetings, and customized topical executive workshops and discussion groups

This interplay between innovators, investors and leading companies makes FTV unique among growth equity investors.

Dedicated Business Development Team

Many investors promise to help their companies with networking and lead sourcing. FTV delivers through a dedicated business development team that works directly with our investment team and portfolio company management to create opportunities for growth. Specifically, our BD team provides introductions to our Global Partner Network and creates outreach plans tailored for each portfolio company, whether they are seeking to reach key buyers of their solutions or potential channel and distribution partners who can help accelerate growth.

Annual Partner Conference

A cornerstone of FTV’s business development efforts, we hold this conference each year to bring together our limited partners, our portfolio companies and our Global Partner Network for three days of networking and one-on-one interaction between our portfolio company CEOs and executives at the most successful and influential companies in their sectors.
