Visit Website

Butterfly Equity is a Los Angeles-based private equity firm specializing in the food sector from seed to fork across the following key verticals: agriculture & aquaculture, food & beverage products, food distribution and foodservice. Their team has significant experience across food, private equity, and technology and has been involved in investing more than $10Bn of equity capital in companies ranging from growth-stage to Fortune 500 enterprises. The team has an abundance of institutional knowledge and have come from firms like KKR, Vista, TPG, Apollo, and Leonard Green, which often makes Butterfly the investor of choice among company managements in the food sector. The firm is investing out of its second fund, a $1Bn vehicle, which is double its prior fund.  They also have the flexibility to do much larger deals due to special purpose vehicles they have raised and have a number of household brand names in their portfolio such as Pete and Gerry’s and Bolthouse Farms. Strong performing Associates will be on a career track with the opportunity for continued growth and advancement within the firm.

Founded in 1987, Carlyle is one of the world’s largest and most successful alternative asset management firms with $325Bn AUM.  Their Global Private Equity team has a flexible mandate and the ability to invest across the spectrum from growth to late-stage buyout deals.  The firm is investing out of Carlyle Partners VIII, which is a $14.8Bn vehicle raised in 2018, and they are currently in the market raising their next flagship fund, which is slated to be meaningfully larger and will include a significant allocation to growth deals. The team sits in three offices (NY, DC, Menlo Park) and is organized across five sector verticals. Candidates can be considered for multiple teams.

Aerospace, Defense and Government Services (ADS) – The ADS team at Carlyle is one of the most differentiated and coveted groups on Wall Street.  The ADS team sits at the firm’s headquarters in DC, which provides direct access to the firm’s senior leadership.  Carlyle ADS has a leading track record and has put more capital to work in their sectors than any other firm – in total, the team has deployed over $12Bn of capital across ~45 platforms and well over 100 deals (including add-ons).  Often misunderstood as focusing solely on traditional A&D, Carlyle’s ADS investments are heavily weighted towards cutting-edge Technology business (services, software, and products).  The ADS team deployed ~$3Bn of equity capital in 2022 (more than any other group at Carlyle), and all within Technology-enabled platforms (ManTech, CNSI / Kepro).  With an extensive legacy dating back to the founding of Carlyle, the team has been actively investing in the Aerospace, Defense and Government Services sectors for over 30 years.  Given the competitive advantage they’ve developed from their history and network, much of their deal flow is proprietary or in limited auctions.  The sectors they cover are experiencing what are expected to be multi-year tailwinds, in light of the global aerospace recovery, growth in cybersecurity and other critical national security needs, as well as a global increase in defense spending.  They currently have ~10 active portfolio companies and a lean team of ~15 investment professionals. The team has completed a number of high-profile investments, including Booz Allen Hamilton, StandardAero, Howmet and Titan.  Other recent transactions of note include the $4.2Bn take private of Mantech in 2022, the combination of CNSI / Kepro in 2022, the acquisition of Two Six Technologies (a high growth, tech-focused provider to the Intelligence Community, DoD & others) in 2021, and the recent exit of Novetta.  For those who have an interest in attending business school, the Carlyle ADS team has a 100% hit rate of prior Associates being admitted to one or more of HBS, GSB, and Wharton.

Financial Services – Carlyle is one of a handful of large private equity firms with a dedicated financial services team, focused exclusively on the financial services sector. Financial services operates as a core sector within Carlyle’s flagship fund family, currently investing out of Carlyle Partners VIII, L.P.  The Financial Services team has a global presence (portfolio spans the US and the UK, in particular), though the team is based in NYC. This team has an established history of investing in the space, having completed over 30 transactions and deployed over $6Bn of capital to-date. They have a flexible mandate, with check sizes ranging from $300M-$1.5Bn+ (can be larger inc. co-invest), and the ability to work on both minority and majority deals. Associates will have the opportunity to invest across the various verticals within Financial Services (including business services, asset and wealth management, insurance, depositories, specialty finance, financial technology, etc.). The team is also very lean, with 7 investment professionals above the Associate level, allowing Associates to take on outsized responsibility. Some recent notable deals include Captrust (wealth management), CFGI (accounting services), Hilb (insurance brokerage), NSM (insurance underwriting + brokerage), Vantage (insurance carrier), etc.

Healthcare – Carlyle has deployed $23bn globally in 90+ healthcare transactions across a range of deal sizes and transaction types, from growth minority investments to large-cap buyouts. The dedicated healthcare team invests across all verticals, including outsourced services & solutions, innovative & low-cost providers, HCIT & tech-enabled services, medical technology & products, life science tools and diagnostics, and pharma products. The team seeks investments that are “part of the solution,” targeting companies that reduce costs, improve quality of care, and increase access to healthcare. Example investments include PPD (take-private and recapitalization), One Medical (growth minority), TriNetX (growth buyout), and Medline (large-cap buyout). Associates will join a group that has invested 1/4th of the capital in recent funds and generated a leading track record in the industry.

Industrial – The Industrial team is a long-tenured, global team which sits at the firm’s headquarters in DC, providing direct access to the firm’s senior leadership.  The team invests across business cycles and end markets, including Automation, Automotive, Building Products, Capital Goods, Chemicals, Commercial Vehicles, Packaging, Services, and Transportation & Logistics.  With a flexible mandate, investments range from minority to majority deals and across various growth stages.  The group has had a particularly successful history with corporate carve-out transactions from larger corporations, which are responsible for nearly two-thirds of equity invested.  Carlyle excels in driving performance through multiple levers of value creation, including international expansion, new product development, M&A, and strategic positioning strategies. The Industrial team has deployed over $35Bn in capital, completed over 120 transactions to date. The Industrial team has completed some of the firm’s largest and most successful investments, and recent deals include Duravant, Asplundh, the carve-out of AkzoNobel’s Specialty Chemicals business, and carve out of Atotech from Total. The Industrial team at Carlyle has experienced consistently robust deal flow and benefited from strong continuity among team members throughout the ranks.

Technology – Technology is the largest segment of investments for Carlyle, and the Technology team has collectively invested $41Bn+ since inception in 313 deals, which is more than any other sector at Carlyle.  The portfolio includes investments across Software & Data, Tech-Enabled Services and Hardware.  The team has a flexible investment mandate, with transactions spanning from growth equity to late-stage buyouts.  They partner with strong partners and management teams at companies across various growth stages, from incumbent market leaders to disruptive businesses that are earlier in their trajectory.  Deals include levered / unlevered structures, minority / majority ownership, buy & build strategies, take privates / PIPEs, IPOs, and strategic sales.  Check sizes range from $100M-$2Bn, and the team has closed a number of notable platforms recently such as HireVue, Tribute Technology, Jagex, and ZoomInfo.  The team is based in the firm’s headquarters in DC and Menlo Park, and this opportunity is in DC, which provides direct access to the firm’s senior leadership.
