Since its inception in 1986, Gladstone has employed a value investor philosophy.  We focus on those opportunities where performance enhancements can be achieved through infusions of capital and management talent.  We often develop a partnership with sellers who retain ongoing ownership and share in the future growth of a company.

While we do not have a specific industry preference, we have considerable experience in health & business services, light manufacturing  and distribution.  We focus on opportunities in the Midwest and Southeast U. S.
