Our Strategy

At Vistria, we are seeking to build a new kind of private investment firm that delivers both financial returns and societal impact. With almost $9.5 billion in AUM, we invest in carefully selected sectors that underpin a thriving society, including Healthcare, Knowledge & Learning Solutions, and Financial Services. Since our founding in 2013, we believe we have delivered attractive returns and consistent performance by partnering with management teams to improve outcomes for our portfolio companies, and the lives and livelihoods they support.

Building strong companies with positive societal outcomes is foundational to our investment thesis. This requires a new mindset: value creation conceived differently, delivering returns for investors as well as communities, employees, and consumers. This approach has been central to Vistria’s performance since the earliest days of our firm, and in our view, it will continue to power our future growth.
