Graycliff Partners is an independent investment firm focusing on middle market private equity and mezzanine investments in the United States. In December of 2011, the former HSBC Capital team spun out to form Graycliff. The core Graycliff team has been working together for approximately two decades, first operating as Midland Montagu Private Equity and then as HSBC Capital.

The Graycliff name is inspired by the image of a promontory, a point of transition and dramatic meeting of land and sea. An enduring landmark and a familiar point of reference to embark on and return from a journey, the location also provides a vantage point for a far-reaching and strategic perspective.
