Working With Us

Our investments are typically four to five year journeys which can follow a variety of different paths.

about-working-final

Our entire team is based together in our office in London, which allows us to operate efficiently and effectively. Strategies for creating value may include:

Separation from a larger parent

This can allow a previously non-core division the room to grow into an independent and viable entity.

Capital investment programmes

Optimising manufacturing facilities, for example, may be a short term cost which yields attractive long terms results.

Facilitating international development

Setting up in new markets is a common and often successful way to grow a business and to reduce reliance on a single domestic market. We have significant experience in helping UK-based companies to grow in this way.

Accelerating growth through acquisitions

A significant number of our portfolio companies have made complementary acquisitions after our initial investment. These may be small, opening up a new market or complimentary client base, or large and transformative.

Operational improvement

Our team’s experience can help to identify ways to improve an existing business to position it optimally for future growth.

We take a long-term view. We do not have fixed plans on how or when to realise an investment, although we will usually have a view on likely routes to an exit. In reality, we are typically invested for four to five years.

Don’t just take our word for it. If you’d like to talk to one of our portfolio company managers about the way we go about things, we’d be happy to put you in touch with them.
