Overview

At Hyperion we keep it simple. 

We look for good businesses that have high growth potential and we invest financial, intellectual and relationship capital into control investments and build profitable businesses and strong brands.

Traditional value-investing can be somewhat scientific by nature, but we believe there is an art to creating and attracting unique “off-market” opportunities. We try to balance the best of both worlds in order to adjust risk and optimize growth.

Our lens is entrepreneurial, but our processes are rigorous and disciplined. Our view is long term, and we are prepared to build value patiently and prudently.

We help private investors, commercial lenders and independent sponsors optimize value for their investments. Our services include developing credible investment frameworks, conducting industry and market research, identifying key business drivers, conducting due diligence, creating capital raising documents, and modeling various scenarios to limit risks and maximize returns.

Hyperion always acts in the best interest of our stakeholders and investors to successfully locate, review, execute, and exit transactions.

Our Process

We source proprietary and high-quality investment opportunities by leveraging our relationships to discover opportunities before others. Partners come to us first because they know we will treat them with urgency and as a high priority.

A quick “no” is often the best option versus a prolonged discussion that everyone knows is going nowhere.

In our pipeline meetings, we spend quality time discussing and reviewing potential opportunities while determining what internal and external resources are best suited to pursue those opportunities

When considering valuation, we take a conservative view of the current outlook and judge the predictability of that outlook over time.

We look at what we can bring to the table to enhance value and string together new opportunities for growth and expansion, whether through opening up access to new customers and marketplaces, developing best operational practices, or reviewing financial structures and management systems.

We have an eye for identifying great companies and opportunities that we can enhance to create an impact. We provide patient capital and operational support to give management teams the tools they need to thrive.

Our approach helps portfolio companies grow their core businesses, launch new initiatives and make transformative changes to support their long-term strategy.

We help create good jobs and support local communities. We believe that by doing so we are ultimately securing the future of Caribbean countries.

That’s how we measure impact.

As careful stewards of capital, our first objective is to preserve and protect that capital while taking appropriately managed and calculated risk to achieve desired results.

We are not afraid of risk.

We focus on carefully assessing the probability of various risk factors, while putting in place appropriate mitigation plans that enable us to make positive decisions about the business.

Our investment approach is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the catalysts for increasing value.

We purposely engage only in friendly transactions and work with talented management teams to achieve transformative results.

Our specialized portfolio operations team helps to maximize value by improving processes across different aspects of a business’ operations.
