Realizing the potential of small financial service companies


The Banc Funds

At the Banc Funds, we believe that a small financial company with vision can grow to become a great company.  As the leading private equity investor in subregional financial service companies, we back that vision with action.


Since our founding in 1986, we have invested $4.8 billion in over 3,000 companies across nine Banc Funds.


We seek out small companies with assets under $500 million which show the initiative to build their companies into something greater. We then provide them with the expertise and resources to uncover and maximize new business opportunities. We provide capital that allows them to grow. We offer critical insights to help management improve their operations, and we devise strategic plans to allow companies to maximize shareholder value. 


We give small financial companies the strength that larger companies use to grow.
