We invest in seasoned information service companies, with proven business models, that are ready for accelerated growth and enhanced performance through the application of new technologies and sector-focused operating experience.


Ethos was founded by Erik Brooks and Fadi Chehadé. Erik is a private equity veteran with over 25 years of experience in the industry, and Fadi is an accomplished entrepreneur who founded, grew, and sold several information service companies.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB)

Ethos is proud to be an ILPA Diversity in Action initiative signatory signaling our commitment to improving diversity, equity and inclusion in the industry through action.

To join the Initiative, Ethos provided a summary of certain concrete actions, sourced from the Initiative Framework, that we are taking to promote DEIB within our organization and in the wider industry.

As a signatory, we participate in regular roundtable discussions, working groups and surveys to provide the industry with greater transparency on the state of DEIB today and on DEIB best practices that will move private markets forward.
