We build companies around talented & incentivised management teams with strong track records.
Over a 3-5 year investment horizon, we pursue low-leverage “buy and build” strategies, applying private equity disciplines to publicly-quoted businesses.
Our acquisition-led growth strategies target European and North American mid cap businesses across a diverse array of sectors and investment cycles.
Drawing upon our experience as a hands-on investor, we provide our portfolio management teams with the highest level of operational and advisory support normally available only to much larger companies, including corporate finance advice, infrastructure support and a full range of management services.
We typically acquire significant minority shareholdings in our portfolio companies where we have board representation as well as day-to-day collaborative involvement. Our investment is made alongside a number of blue-chip long-only institutional co-investors in each portfolio company who, along with management, own the remainder of the equity.
