Talisman is a private investment partnership located in Columbus, Ohio. Our partners all come from operating company backgrounds. We partner with management in businesses that we understand and to which we can add value. Our objective is to be a strategic and financial partner to management teams that seek to build significant shareholder value.
Talisman’s capital originates from its partners, not institutional investors. As such, our investing philosophy is different than institutional private equity firms. We don’t have artificial, finite holding periods for any investments that we make. Instead, we are driven by what is best for the business from a strategic and a long-term value creation standpoint.
