Our Firm

EQ Holdings acquires, invests in, and builds meaningful businesses in partnership with management and Investment firms over an indefinite time horizon. We understand that achieving sustainable growth takes time, careful planning, and methodical execution over the long term.

Our Differentiators

EQ Holdings is a different type of investor. We are:

  • An entrepreneurial creator of businesses
  • Experienced; with a broad investment mandate and a flexible structure orientation
  • Able to accommodate extended hold periods and tax efficient structures
  • Focused on fundamental value creation
  • Completely self-funded and do not have limited partners

Our Story

In 2007, our Founder, Andy Juang, faced the same dilemma many business owners face when seeking liquidity options. How do I protect my employees who helped me build my business? How does the legacy of my company, my brand, and my customers endure?

These are difficult questions to answer when considering the options of selling to a strategic buyer or a private equity fund. EQ Holdings leverages its unique structure as an ESOP to differentiate itself from other buyers or investors and is intentionally focused on the greater good for all participants.
