What we invest in

Scalable businesses in high growth sectors

Investment size

We invest between £10m and £40m in any one business. Our funding can be used to support management buy-outs, provide cash out to owner-managers, fund acquisitions and organic growth initiatives.

We want to ensure that the businesses we back have the investment required to accelerate growth on day one, this could also mean providing the funding for an acquisition programme upfront, thus enabling acquisitions to happen faster as well as eliminating the debate about the cost of follow-on funding down the line.

What we look for

We are looking for businesses that have some, if not all, of the following characteristics:

  • The potential to be a market leading business in a fast growing sector
  • A disruptive and scalable business model
  • A consolidator in a fragmented market
  • An ability to expand internationally

Types of deals

We actively seek investment opportunities in the following areas:

  • Cash out deals with owner-managers who would like to de-risk personally but still accelerate the growth of their business
  • Management buy-outs, ¬†backing management to buy the businesses they run
  • Funding acquisitions, providing capital to businesses that would like to pursue a buy-and-build strategy
  • Expansion capital, providing investment to accelerate organic growth initiatives
