Experience. Commitment. Results.
Fidus Investment Corporation is an externally managed, closed-end, non-diversified management investment company that has elected to be regulated as a business development company, or “BDC,” under the Investment Company Act of 1940. This status provides our company with certain structural advantages, including public liquidity and an advantageous tax structure.
Our objective is to generate current income from our debt investments and capital appreciation from our equity-related investments. We were formed to continue and expand the business of Fidus Mezzanine Capital, L.P., a fund formed in February 2007 that is licensed by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) as a small business investment company (“SBIC”).
Fidus Investment Corporation is managed by Fidus Investment Advisors, LLC, and corporate governance is provided by our independent board of directors. Senior management of our investment advisor has an average of more than 25 years of experience and the senior investment team has worked together for a large majority of the past 15 years. The Fidus Investment team has extensive experience providing private debt and equity financing solutions to lower middle market businesses and a strong track record of helping companies reach their potential.
Fidus Investment Corporation is headquartered in Evanston, IL, and has offices in New York, NY, and Charlotte, NC.
