American Residential Services is a leading provider of heating and air conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing services nationwide.

Charlesbank Investment

In 2014, Charlesbank acquired ARS in partnership with management, following a narrow process. In 2020, we sold the company to a financial sponsor. Simultaneously with this exit, we made a new investment in ARS alongside the sponsor, with management reinvesting a significant portion of its proceeds.
