Dedicated to energy
The founding partners of Yorktown were all previous employees of Dillon Read, a US investment bank, and were responsible for the firm’s energy investments from 1983 to 1997. In 1997, the partners formed Yorktown Partners as an independent entity following the sale of Dillon Read to Swiss Bank Corporation.
Yorktown’s rich history has fostered an organizational culture characterized by collegiality, collaboration and a profound mutual respect among its team members. These values, which are deeply ingrained within Yorktown’s culture, resonate with both existing and prospective management teams, leading to a strong sense of mutual recognition and appreciation.
