The Ferrante Group ("TFG") is a Family Merchant Bank focused on lower middle-market private equity investments in manufacturing, business services, media and entertainment, consumer products and services, financial services, and real estate.  

Domenic Ferrante is Managing Partner of The Ferrante Group.  Domenic was a Managing Director at Bain Capital for 14 years and is founder of Brookside Capital, the hedge fund affiliate of Bain Capital.  Brookside started with $100 million in 1996, consistently generated top quartile performance, and grew to more than $11 billion under management in 2010 when Domenic retired.

TFG typically invests $5 to $25 million per investment, generally corresponding to companies generating $3 to $20 million of annual EBITDA.  The firm has significant investment flexibility and operates outside the constraints of institutional partners and structures. 

TFG is looking to invest in competitively advantaged companies and assets with strong economic models.  We are interested in companies that exhibit the following characteristics:

  • The potential to grow organically in core markets or through expansion in complimentary markets;
  • A sustainable business model with a path to strong cash flows;
  • A core team of solid managers committed to the long term success of the business;
  • A culture which historically has rewarded competence, ethical behavior, and loyalty.
