ARC Financial Corp.

Canada’s largest private equity firm focused exclusively on Canadian oil and gas

Energy. Capital. Partners.

In 1989, three entrepreneurial professionals founded ARC Financial Corp. (previously known as PowerWest Financial). The company focused on providing corporate advisory services and in-depth investment research. During the early years, the company also invested, as principals and with partners, in the equity of early stage energy companies and in oil and gas production assets. The growth of ARC’s production asset business led to the founding of the ARC Energy Trust in 1996. The ARC Energy Trust, which is now ARC Resources Ltd., is a TSX-listed company (ARX) and one of the major players in the Canadian oil and gas sector.

In 1997, ARC’s corporate advisory, research and equity investment businesses evolved into an exclusive focus on private equity investing. Since then, ARC has raised nine energy focused private equity funds totaling $5.8 billion of committed capital from institutional investors across Canada, the United States and Europe. The ARC Energy Funds provide growth equity capital to energy companies with an exclusive focus on the Canadian oil and gas industry.
