Growth. This is often the most misunderstood and mispriced aspect of fundamentals-based investing. Despite their best attempts, market estimates, sample polls, and surveys do not provide the complete picture of company growth and many times project the wrong conclusions. We see the current explosion of data as a watershed moment for investing. Investors can unmask the intrinsic value of companies by harnessing the power of Data Science. Popularized in Silicon Valley, Data Science is an innovative discipline used to liberate and create meaning from raw data.

Two Six Capital has pioneered Data Science for Private Equity. We combine the power of large scale Engineering and Statistics to make smarter investment decisions and build value. We have built a Cyborg – the combination of hypotheses-driven human judgment coupled with large scale machine driven statistical analysis. This allows us to see the value where others do not, and create value in ways others cannot.

Two Six is founded on over 25 years of intellectual property and research in Data Science. The firm’s innovative process has been applied to over 30 companies in partnership with top-tier global private equity institutions. We have participated in marquee growth buyouts whose combined enterprise value exceeds $20 billion. The Two Six Platform has accumulated knowledge stored in over $70 billion of granular transaction-level data, the largest scale in the private equity asset class.

"What Two Six Capital has done is recognize that whether you have 100 customers or 10 million customers, you make profits one customer at a time. In today’s data-rich and fast-computing world, this philosophy is monetizable, and Two Six Capital is using state-of-the-art methods to accomplish it"
- Professor Eric Bradlow, Wharton

Recognizing data is an underutilized corporate asset, we bring Data Science domain expertise as a differentiated weapon to private equity investing. We work with two stakeholders: top-line growth oriented private equity firms and management teams deluged in data but starved of insights. Our human judgment starts by asking the right investment questions, identifying which hypotheses prove or disprove an investment case, and determining how value can be increased in a target asset. Collectively, we unlock actionable insights from internal company data to realize full business potential and drive higher returns.
