Best Private Equity Firms in Houston | ZT Corporate

About Us

ZT Corporate is a firm of operationally-oriented entrepreneurs dedicated to developing and growing income-producing lower-middle market companies. Our focus is on creating value with our business partners by investing in inefficient markets where creativity, hard work, and disciplined risk-taking can generate exceptional returns for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Over the years, the company has diversified from owned and operated healthcare ventures to professionally managed car dealerships, franchise restaurants, and real estate. What has not changed is the company’s unrelenting commitment to client satisfaction and dedication to working closely with operations to deliver results. ZT offers both wealth management and private equity direct investment opportunities to accredited investors, institutions, and family offices.

Chairman and CEO Taseer Badar began his career in the wealth management industry in New York City, but he found something was lacking. He envisioned a firm that offered investment opportunities in owner-operator entities, as well as a culture that embraced the values ZT has come to exemplify.

Since beginning in 1997, ZT Corporate has focused on developing robust client relationships, utilizing innovative strategies, and delivering personalized attention to clients. As we look toward the future, we remain committed to improving the investment experience for our clients.
