History

Since our founding in 1992 originally within J.P. Morgan & Co., Corsair has been a pioneer private equity investor in the global financial services sector. Milestone investments include providing the first private sector investment in the Swedish mutual banking sector; leading the largest US bank recapitalization during the financial crisis; and being the first financial sponsor to support a strategic acquisition of an FDIC resolved institution.

We are committed to the highest level of transparency and integrity for our investors and portfolio company management teams. Corsair believes that building trust and confidence is the key to maintaining a strong, long-term, successful investment strategy. Our engagement with stakeholders is relationship oriented. We are listeners first and advisors second.
