Auctus Partners, L.P.

We are Auctus Partners

An opportunistic Special Situation Fund providing flexible debt and equity financing instruments across a number of different industry verticals.

Unlike a traditional Private Equity Firm, we don’t have a firm set of criteria, but rather, we evaluate each opportunity on a case-by-case basis. Auctus makes minority or control investments that range from early stage to mature, lower middle market companies. Our wide range and variety of investments are a testament to our commitment to further the growth and prosperity of the mainly neglected, but most promising, business segment in North America.

Our main objective is to identify unique opportunities, partner with committed management teams, and collaborate to drive business value. Many small businesses do not have sufficient financial & operational resources to drive profitable growth. Our collaborative approach allows the management team to focus on implementation of strategic initiatives, thus creating long-term value for all stakeholders.


Auctus Securities was formed to ensure that in a consolidating investment banking industry, the middle market can still access experienced, professional help at a reasonable fee structure.

The US banking industry is consolidating at an ever-increasing pace. The number of pure investment banks is shrinking as leading players merge with or become traditional deposit banks to strengthen their balance sheets

Beat the Banks

As banks increase in size, and their income is produced increasingly from trading activities with higher income-to-professional ratios, M&A divisions in the leading banks are under constant pressure to focus on larger transactions with concomitantly larger fee income, and flatter staff structures to increase profit per transaction.

  • Engagement fees now are typically $250,000-500,000
  • Minimum fees increasingly are at $2-3m per transaction

Modern Solutions

Given these trends, a space exists in the advisory marketplace for boutiques with experienced professionals who can profitably target M&A and private placement transactions in the $50-500m range and provide:

  • Senior-level attention to each transaction
  • Traditional fee structures that make sense for the client as well as the bank
