About Us

A nimble, focused group of investors committed to creating value.

In 2006, The Tokarz Group Advisers LLC (TTGA) became the investment adviser to MVC Capital, Inc., which trades on the NYSE as MVC. TTGA is a registered investment adviser. We are based in Purchase, NY, with additional offices in Chicago, IL and Cincinnati, OH.

Our expertise is in making long-term debt and equity investments in lower middle-market companies to fund growth, acquisitions and recapitalizations. Our strong operational experience allows us to immerse ourselves in our portfolio companies, typically working closely with existing management teams to seek a substantial increase in value over the long term.
