With over $15 billion of equity capital dedicated to growing middle market companies and emerging high-growth enterprises, L Catterton is the largest and most experienced consumer-focused private equity group in the world.
In January of 2016, Catterton, the leading consumer-focused private equity firm, LVMH, the world leader in high-quality products, and Groupe Arnault, the family holding company of Bernard Arnault, partnered to create L Catterton. The partnership combined Catterton’s existing North American and Latin American private equity operations with LVMH and Groupe Arnault’s existing European and Asian private equity and real estate operations, resulting in the largest, diversified consumer-dedicated private equity firm in the world.
