About Vista Equity Partners

Vista Equity Partners is a global investment firm founded by Robert F. Smith focusing on the large and growing enterprise software market through private equity, permanent capital, credit and public equity investment strategies.


True to Smith’s philosophy, giving back is woven into the DNA of Vista Equity Partners. Vista is committed to positively impacting the communities where it has offices and where its companies operate. Vista’s philanthropy focuses on education, job training, the arts and the environment. For example, Vista made a three-year pledge to Code.org and their Hour of Code program to help expand opportunities for young people seeking to enter the digital economy. Vista was also a founding partner in Girls Who Invest to help increase the number of women in portfolio management and executive leadership in the asset management industry.
