We are excited by the enthusiasm for our 20-year, value-oriented approach to the lower middle market and we look forward to building on our success in Fund IV.”

Fund IV will continue the investment strategy ICV has successfully implemented since forming ICV two decades ago, pursuing differentiated sourcing channels and partnering with leading, lower-middle market companies to identify and unlock value potential.
