Where we've been has so much to do with where we are today.

History

Trilantic Formed

Trilantic Capital Partners was formed in April 2009 by five founding partners who acquired Lehman Brothers Merchant Banking (LBMB) from the estate of Lehman Brothers with the support of Reinet Investments S.C.A., an investment vehicle listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. Trilantic Capital Partners North America and Trilantic Capital Partners Europe are owned and operated as independent investment managers within their respective geographies. The relationship between the two companies is regulated by the Executive Committee, chaired by Charlie Ayres, which oversees certain decisions relating to the Trilantic brand and trade name.
