Echoing the Past

Crescentia's Growth-Inspired Name

"Crescentia" means "land of growth or increase" and was the name that Lord Baltimore, Sir George Calvert, originally intended for the land granted to him by King Charles I in the early 17th century. Though the land ultimately became the State of Maryland, in honor of Queen Mary, the essence of growth and potential that Crescentia embodies aligns with our firm’s mission and history at Calvert Street. At Crescentia Capital, we view the lower middle market as the 'land of growth’ and passionately drive our investments to increase value and achieve successful outcomes.
