About Us

Wasserstein & Co. is a family office and private investment firm, with offices in New York and Los Angeles. The firm was formed in January 2001, when the merchant banking group of Wasserstein Perella & Co., Inc., a global investment banking firm, spun out to become an independent firm upon the acquisition of Wasserstein Perella by Dresdner Bank.

The firm manages capital on behalf of the Wasserstein family and other individual investors.  Our investment activities are currently conducted through two entities: Wasserstein & Co., LP,  and Wasserstein Debt Opportunities, which focuses on high yield bonds and leveraged loans.
