We look for established smaller businesses around the UK where shareholders are looking to unlock capital as part of an overall growth plan for the company.
Our team has a wealth of experience in buyout investing and we supply growing businesses with development and acquisition funding, as well as backing MBOs, MBI and buy-and-build strategies. We also invest in equity release opportunities, enabling founders and managers to realise a proportion of their shareholding whilst retaining a stake in their business as it continues to grow.
