About us

Investment philosophy

Within private equity, we have a highly focused approach, aiming for strong and consistent returns with relatively low downside risk.

We focus on the buyout segment of the private equity market, in which target companies are established, profitable and cash generative. Within buyouts, our focus is on mid-market and larger transactions, partnering with leading private equity managers in developed markets.

Through this approach, we are aiming to build a portfolio of companies with defensive growth characteristics as we believe these companies will generate the most consistently strong returns over the long term.

Buyouts - Offer more consistent returns with lower risk than other private equity strategies e.g. venture capital or distressed debt.

Developed markets - Primarily in Europe and the US which have more established private equity sectors and more experienced managers.

Mid-market and larger deals - More likely to be resilient to economic cycles and typically attract stronger management teams than smaller companies.

Leading private equity managers - With track records of investing and adding value through cycles.
