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.
Qualifying companies will have:
- A strong and ambitious high quality management team
- A sustainable competitive advantage
- Defensible margins
- Well formulated strategy
- Clear vision for growth
- Sector experience and a proven track record
- Investing in most industry sectors excluding synthetic fibres and yarns, motor vehicles, steel products, transport, property and financial services
