Crescent Capital Partners is Australia’s most active private equity manager in healthcare.
Put simply, because of our experience, we get healthcare. With approximately half of our investments in healthcare, we intuitively understand what it takes to support healthcare teams to grow businesses through the next stage of growth. We are flexible in our investment approach, which can take the form of minority investment, majority investment, buyout, fund for growth or generational change.
