About Lateral Investment Management

Lateral Investment Management, LLC ("Lateral"), founded in 2014, is an opportunistic credit and growth equity private asset manager. The firm provides growth capital to non-sponsored, lower- middle market companies through the direct origination of short-term loans and minority equity stakes.

Our private market strategies focus on investing in lower-middle market firms that have limited capital availability due to the structural dislocation in the US capital markets. We partner with owner-operators who have high conviction in their future outlook and want the support of an institutional investor without the loss of control and dilution of a traditional private equity partner.

Lateral is an SEC registered firm* with approximately $450MM in assets under management. The company is headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and has an office in New York City.
