Partners in growth
Our investment model is purpose-built for SMEs looking to scale-up. We support entrepreneurs throughout the growth journey, taking a truly patient approach to investing. We never take a controlling equity stake, and have experienced teams in every region of the UK and Ireland, with strong links to local and global business communities.
Since 2011, we’ve invested nearly £4bn in patient, minority capital, including more than £1bn of follow-on funding. We’ve also provided significant value creation support, specific to the needs of portfolio companies. In doing so, we’ve helped hundreds of businesses to unlock their growth potential.
From family businesses and university spinouts to some of the world’s best-known brands, we’re proud to support a large, diverse portfolio of companies, covering every sector of the growth economy.
