Arsenal Capital Management

Our goal is to provide our investors with a superior investment return by identifying early capital opportunities within a fund structure that is transparent, focused and cost conscious. We are St. Louisians. We take pride in our region and strive to make it a better place to live and work. While we invest where the opportunities are best, we want to help local entrepreneurs build successful companies.


We believe the greatest percentage returns occur in the early stage of a company’s life cycle, therefore ACM has many times been the first outside capital invested. Our initial investment in a company ranges from $500,000 up to $5 million with a maximum total investment of up to $10 million. This amount is significantly greater than most funds that prefer to do syndicated capital rounds. This strategy gives ACM significant influence from the onset and provides significant rights to follow-on offerings.

We prefer to lead a capital round, thereby setting the terms and do not require other outside investors to be involved. These characteristics, are again, much different from most funds. Last we believe that a more focused portfolio with significant ownership (and influence) will result in superior returns over the long-term.

If this strategy resonates with you we invite you to review the Investor Suitability section for further information.
