Whether searching for the next technology that will disrupt the norm in our daily lives, or injecting capital to allow a business to expand across borders, our investment experts work through a variety of transaction types to make this happen. 

Whilst we invest across almost all 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.
