Key Equity Investors is dedicated to identifying tomorrow's market leaders today. We invest in small established companies that have excellent management, a well-defined product and market, a conservative balance sheet, shareholder commitment, integrity and the strategic vision to take the company to the next level. We typically make small passive investments, but are fully prepared to take large controlling positions, if warranted by the needs of the company and the merits of the opportunity.
Our principals have been investing in small public companies for decades. We are patient long-term investors who are committed to working with the managements of our companies to help grow their businesses and enhance shareholder value.
