Who we are.
Snowdon Partners is a private investment firm headquartered in Montreal, Canada. We have built businesses as operators and are focused on building enduring companies alongside outstanding entrepreneurs.
We lead direct investing activities on behalf of Aldo Bensadoun's Family Office, Sweet Park Capital.
People First, Always
We know - from firsthand experience - that great people have a disproportionate impact on a company's success. That is why we invest in companies with strong teams and work tirelessly to help you build a talent advantage.
We evaluate each investment on its own merits through rigorous independent analysis and research. Our diligence process is driven by our desire to understand what makes your businesses truly distinctive.
Lasting value is built over time. We are firm believers in the long game and our long-term philosophy underpins everything we do. As stewards of family capital, we understand the importance of investing for the next generation, not the next exit.
Snowdon Partners was founded in 2013 by Dan Chetrit and Liroy Haddad, lifelong friends and experienced private equity professionals. After training with some of the world's leading firms, they acquired and operated a business together, and understand what it takes to build great companies.
