Consumer, Leisure & Retail

Strong brands and differentiated customer propositions with further growth potential

The consumer, leisure and retail sectors are large, dynamic and constantly evolving creating opportunities for private equity backed management teams to thrive. We look to back businesses with strong brands and differentiated customer propositions. Our key investment themes include (but are not limited to):

Strong consumer brands with international potential – Growth in international markets combined with an increasingly global and brand aware consumer has resulted in a significant opportunity for such brands. We look for strong brands with a unique and differentiated proposition, often with demonstrable international potential.

Focus on value – Consumers have increased their focus on value since the economic downturn which has resulted in a polarisation of behavior with the middle part of the market often struggling to justify its relevance to the consumer.
