What we do

We back and partner ambitious UK management teams to help them accelerate their growth and build successful businesses.

How we create value

We have a proven approach to creating value developed as a team over many years.

Backing incumbent management teams


We invest in ambitious companies with strong incumbent management teams. We recognise and value the vast wealth of knowledge sitting within your business and it is this which we look to nurture and develop.

External expertise


We work with a close network of sector experts and relevant non‐executive chairmen. We enable this process through leveraging our in-house Talent Director who maintains close links with a broad group of specialists. Our chairmen bring a fresh perspective to the board and invest alongside us.

Alignment of interests


Relationships with management teams are important to us. We take a board seat and actively engage on the strategy for the business. We strongly believe in a true partnership approach between all stakeholders and ensure there is a strong alignment of interest from day one. We encourage equity to be distributed appropriately amongst the people making a difference.

Exit strategy


We have years of experience in judging the optimal time to exit. It is a balance between market conditions and business performance. We help management teams to run a professional exit process and have a track record of achieving strategic valuations.
