Investment Approach

Our investment strategy is opportunistic. We typically provide equity cheques in the region of £2m to £30m, with a ‘sweet spot’ of £5m to £15m.

We have flexibility in our investment approach such that:

  • we are not constrained by total deal size;
  • we can take majority or minority positions;
  • can lead, co-invest or be a syndicate member.

We can invest in a variety of deal types, from buy-outs to cash out, from growth capital to corporate carve outs, and balance sheet restructurings. Other than in transport, we do not invest in start-ups.

As captive money we do not have a set view on exit timing and so are not restricted by investment holding periods.

We hold investments in a number of sectors including transport, luxury goods, financial services, healthcare, legal services and various other sectors.

Being an ethical investor, we will not consider investments involving alcohol, tobacco, armaments, gambling or pay-day loan companies.
