Hallmarks of Three Ocean Partners
Three Ocean Partners employs a “Blue Ocean” Strategy of entrepreneurial creativity in the marketplace – creating strategic success by differentiating oneself from the competition. Today's daunting business environment requires CEOs and financial sponsors to compete differently. We have no lending, trading or research activities and, therefore, no conflicts of interest. Three Ocean Partners is privately owned by our employees as well as by some of the most prominent families and CEOs throughout the world.
With the financial landscape dramatically altered, boutique firms are flourishing as CEOs of corporations and financial sponsors seek trusted advice and proprietary deal flow. This can only be accomplished by having a strong focus on idea generation for fewer clients. Three Ocean is not transactional but instead believes in long-term relationships.
