Invested in economic vitality

for Colorado communities.

Our Commitment

Monfort Companies is creating a new playbook for investment and development in Colorado.


We put the needs of the community first by investing in and developing commercial real estate projects that add long-term value and vitality to the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. Grounded by our deep Colorado roots and inspired by the forward thinking of a new generation, we focus on projects that serve as economic drivers and growth engines for Colorado’s urban and rural communities.


Our approach to investment and development is simple: what’s good for the community is good for us.


We believe in cultivating strong public and private partnerships with the ultimate goal of creating legacy properties that deliver lasting returns and catalyze long-term economic growth throughout Colorado.



Transformative Impact

We strive to create value by investing in great businesses where our capital, strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive transformation that unlocks the company’s potential. In addition to benefiting our investors, the improvements in growth and global competitiveness benefit workers, communities and other stakeholders.

We are patient investors who practice the art of the long view, and are committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for our businesses and our investors.


Due Diligence


Our investment approach is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk while identifying the catalysts for increased value. We purposefully engage only in friendly transactions and work with talented management teams to achieve transformative results. Our specialized Portfolio Operations Group helps to maximize value by improving processes across varied elements of a business’s operations. 

The returns that these investments earn for our investors – pension funds, academic and charitable institutions, governments and other institutions, as well as retail investors – help to secure and grow the assets needed to support retirees and fund essential programs.


Our Mission

To opportunistically invest in ventures that create long-term economic value and vitality in communities across Colorado, and enrich the lives of our stakeholders and team members.

Proactive, Targeted Sourcing



Sector-based, theme-driven deal sourcing is the primary responsibility and mandate of our investment professionals. We source opportunities by proactively developing and leveraging strong relationships with companies and key deal intermediaries. 

Transformational Operating Improvements


In determining value for new investments, we focus on a business’s current outlook and judge the predictability of that outlook over time, while also factoring in what we can do for the business to drive even better outcomes after our acquisition.

At Monfort Companies, we believe it’s boring to do things alone. We’re constantly looking for ways to collaborate with like-minded private and public sector partners who share our commitment to helping Colorado communities grow and thrive.



Monfort Companies believes thoughtful development and place-making are just as important in Colorado’s rural communities as in our biggest cities. For the last six years, we’ve worked to create local gathering places in underserved rural markets, spurring economic growth by creating jobs and sales tax revenue. In 2017, we expanded our portfolio to include prime commercial real estate in the heart of Denver’s LoDo neighborhood, a stone’s throw from Coors Field.

The Enduring Story of Kenneth W. Monfort (1928-2001)

Originally called Monfort Feedlots, Monfort Colorado Inc. was founded in 1930 in Greeley, Colorado, by Warren Monfort. Known for pioneering the feedlot concept, Warren created a system to feed his cattle throughout the winter months so consumers could enjoy fresh beef and meatpackers could keep working year-round.


Kenneth W. (Ken) Monfort, Warren’s son, went to work at the company after World War II. Ken is perhaps best known for moving the company’s meat packing plants to where his cattle were raised, eliminating expensive shipping costs associated with transporting cattle to Chicago, Kansas City and other big meat processing cities.

Ken was also one of the first innovators in the beef industry to stop selling whole carcasses to grocers, who had to find a way to divide them and sell each part. With his new approach, Ken divided the cattle first and sent prime parts to retailers and other customers.


In 1950, the company had $1 million in annual sales and 1,000 head of cattle. By the 1960s, there were more than 100,000 ‘pampered cattle’ in the Monfort lots – the first cattle in the nation to eat hot corn flakes for breakfast.

By the time Ken Monfort sold the family business in 1987 to ConAgra, the cattle company was one of Greeley’s largest employers and one of the world’s largest beef operations.


Honoring his family’s legacy in agriculture, real estate and energy, Kenneth Monfort (Ken’s grandson) founded Monfort Companies in 2011.


Monfort Companies is a next-generation company committed to adding long-term economic value and vitality to communities throughout Colorado.
