American Securities LLC (AS) is a private equity investment firm focusing on leveraged buyout transactions. AS focuses primarily on investments in the United States and Canada.

American Securities LLC is based in New York City and traces its roots to the family office founded in 1947 by William Rosenwald to invest and manage his share of the Sears, Roebuck & Co. fortune. In the late 1980s, AS transitioned from a family office into a third-party investment management firm. In 1994, AS transitioned exclusively to its current focus on private equity investments.[1]

The firm currently has more than $8 billion of capital under management.[1] American Securities Partners V, with a 68.8% annual return since inception in 2008, is among the top performing private equity funds raised from 2006-2008.
