Investment Focus

We invest in established growth businesses, which are typically profitable or on track to profitability in the short to medium term. Companies that enjoy a high visibility of future earnings through long term contracts and recurring revenues are particularly attractive. To facilitate the eventual realisation of the investment, we invest in markets with a history of merger and acquisition activity.

While investing across a wide range of industry sectors, we prefer not to invest in sectors driven by short-term trends or consumer preferences, such as high fashion.

With a broad range of funds, we are able to be flexible in structuring deals, providing a mix of equity, loans or mezzanine finance depending on the transaction and the company’s requirements.
