Operating out of Charlotte, NC, we have an experienced team of 19 investment professionals that currently manages approximately $2 billion of assets on behalf of a highly seasoned group of institutional investors, including some of the leading pension funds, insurance companies, fund of funds, and endowments.

Our leadership team has been with the firm since its inception in 1988 and all of our partners have been investing together for over twelve years. We believe there is no substitute for the proven experience that comes from successfully investing in hundreds of businesses through varying economic cycles. It is this experience that forms the backbone of our expertise and positions us to add significant value to every company and management team that we support.

Our team has a singular focus on and significant investing experience in three core industries: Business & Technology Services, Communications and Healthcare. Over the 25 years, Pamlico’s investment team has sourced and led hundreds of transactions in these core industries. Our deep understanding of these sectors has enabled us to be successful over time and to stay ahead of changing trends.
