We believe that technology is most valuable when tailored carefully to customer needs in specific target markets. Where technology makes products or services faster, easier, richer or cheaper, for example, there is transformational opportunity. We are excited by businesses that take advantage of technology and that maintain differentiation in the long term.
Phoenix has partnered with many management teams who have pioneered the use of technology in their market segment, to offer a highly differentiated product or service to their customers. This has led to some outstanding growth and expansion stories.
