West Partners is a San Diego based investment firm, making direct investments in private companies. As part of the Gary and Mary West Family Office, we do not accept capital from outside the West family.  Given our flexible approach to investment structure and our long-term investment horizon, we seek partners to build great businesses over decades, not just years.


We seek controlling stakes in companies operating in growing markets, with strong management teams.  West Partners offers numerous advantages as your source of capital, including:


  • Permanent capital base, with no outside investors
  • Flexible approach to investment structure and investment horizon
  • Focus on value creation
  • Strong belief in incentives for your management team
  • Modest use of leverage, to allow for operational flexibility

We are investors, not operators. We partner with proven managers who build great businesses, and we share the rewards.


West Partners is part of the West Family, which includes the Gary and Mary West Foundation, West Health Institute and its affiliated entities. Founded by Gary and Mary West, the West Health Institute is dedicated to supporting and creating healthcare delivery models that enable seniors to successfully age on their own terms, preserving and protecting their dignity, quality of life and independence.
