Expertise and Integrity - Our Co-Founders
Jason Downie and Edward Herring
have worked together for more than two decades, investing $3.5 billion through four distinct commodity price cycles. In this time, they have learned the value of specialization, being in the flow of the energy value chain and moving with dexterity to identify and capitalize on emerging trends.
In 2013, Jason and Edward founded Tailwater Capital to focus their private expertise on investments serving the needs of ever-evolving energy economies. As nearly career-long partners, they have instilled in the firm a spirit of partnership, entrepreneurship, and a desire to build best-in-class businesses that service society. They understand that being committed to a sector means long-term personal relationships and investment for mutual success.
