American European First Corporation was founded over 30 years ago to provide equity capital in the spirit of partnership with entrepreneurs, families, and management teams. Through the investment process we will invite you to speak with current and former management and investment partners to hear about their experiences with us.
We partner with successful business owners to provide liquidity today and to create stronger, more valuable companies in the future.
We invest substantial equity shoulder-to-shoulder with business owners and management teams with a five to ten year horizon
Our approach avoids excessive debt covenant compliance pressure by funding the majority of a transaction with equity capital and using only a moderate amount of outside debt
We believe good partnerships thrive on open and honest communication, well-aligned economic interests and shared decision-making
We execute and finance follow-on corporate acquisitions that support management’s strategic vision.
