Lead Left Interview – Justin Kaplan

This week we speak with Justin Kaplan, Partner, Balance Point Capital Partners, a lower-middle market investment firm with offices in Westport, CT and Hartford, CT.

The Lead Left: Justin, many of us know you from your days at the Alcentra mezzanine fund, but tell us about what you’re doing at Balance Point.

Justin Kaplan: I joined the Balance Point team as a Partner during the summer of 2013.  I have known the Balance Point principals for over five years having co-invested with them while I was at Alcentra.  Balance Point is focused on providing capital to the lower-end of the middle market with both debt and equity investments.

TLL: What’s the fund you’re currently investing out of?
