Investment Focus

Seneca Holdings invests in small businesses and lower middle market companies throughout the United States.  As the investment arm of the Seneca Nation, we bring strategic advantages to the businesses in our portfolio. These include long-term commitments, our own robust operations and infrastructure to support development, and sovereign benefits.

We are most effective when we acquire majority ownership, which enables us to leverage sovereign advantages.  Our goal is to develop and grow a strong portfolio of businesses to diversify the economy of the Seneca Nation and provide consistent, favorable returns for economic self-sufficiency.

We are committed to Investing for the Seventh Generation.
