Investment Strategy

Our investment strategy for Cannae Holdings is to continue to achieve superior financial performance, maximize and ultimately monetize the value of those assets, to continue to pursue similar investments in businesses, and to grow and achieve superior financial performance with respect to such newly acquired businesses.

Ownership

Take control positions or, where appropriate, meaningful minority stakes in quality companies that are well-positioned in their respective industries, run by best-in-class management teams, and compete in industries that have attractive organic and add-on Mergers & Acquisitions growth opportunities.

Operations

Ability to leverage operational expertise from executives of Fortune 500 companies. Our executives have a track record of growing industry-leading companies in a variety of industries.

Governance

Direct representation on the Board of Directors and actively interface with company management.

Monetization Strategies

Pursue liquidity events, including public offerings, sales to third parties, or spin-offs at the appropriate time given each investment’s unique attributes, but typically within a few years of initial ownership.
