New Harbor Capital is grateful to be included in BluWave’s inaugural 2022 Top 50 Private Equity Innovator Awards. BluWave, a private equity-focused B2B Intelligent Marketplace, created this program to recognize select private equity firms for exemplary performance and leadership. The BluWave 2022 Top 50 Private Equity Innovator Awards recognizes firms that represent the top one percent in the industry for innovative performance in due diligence, value creation, PE firm operations, and ESG.

“New Harbor is very humbled to be included in this list,” said Tom Formolo, Partner at New Harbor Capital. “Our mission is to be a top-performing private equity firm, but never at the expense of our business partners. This award is reflective of that effort, and the long-term investment we’ve made in our overall reputation.”

The BluWave Top 50 Private Equity Innovator Award recipients were selected based upon a rigorous assessment in consultation with leading limited partners, investment bankers, and other thought leaders in the private equity ecosystem. BluWave partners with more than 500 leading private equity firms and has a one-of-a-kind perspective that enables it to uniquely understand best practices and innovation in private equity.

The private equity firms considered for this recognition were assessed across the following criteria:

  • Proactive Due Diligence Practices
  • Transformative Value Creation
  • Progressive Private Equity Firm Operations
  • ESG

“The private equity industry is rapidly evolving, and we applaud the award-winning firms for their leadership across the four areas measured to achieve new levels of business performance,” says Sean Mooney, Founder and CEO, BluWave. “They are transforming the way private equity helps businesses grow and develop and deserve this well-earned recognition.”
