- No funding cycles or exit deadlines
- Initial investments typically between £2m and £10m
- Follow-on funding supports new growth opportunities

All stages of growth
- From earlier-stage or ventures to more established SMEs and quoted companies
- Follow on funding allows us to invest through all these stages
- Global network of business leaders, sector specialists and other investors
- Support on everything from commercial insight, interim leadership, to a seat on the board
Investment as it should be
Our approach begins with listening to management teams, rather than making assumptions. We’re passionate about your business goals, and the type of support you find most valuable. You might plan to grow your business over the long-term, with no plans to sell the company or to exit in a shorter time horizon. Whatever your goal, we do what we can to help CEOs and management teams achieve the ideal outcome for their business.
