INVESTMENT APPROACH

Investment Approach

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Firstly we are not a fund. This gives us a very different approach to our investment strategy, as we have as much flexibility as we need to define our investment and/or exit period, if we want to divest at all. This means we don't look at a business based on the cash returns that can achieve in the short term.

We focus on the medium and long term value creation that can be achieved with a business, be that through organic growth, regional expansion, investment in new facilities or further bolt-on acquisitions. Accordingly, at the forefront of our investment decision is long term value creation not short term cash return. We also have a strong balance sheet to guide us through any economic, regional or political issues. See more...

WHAT WE LOOK FOR
In line with our philosophy for investing of long term value creation, we seek to invest in businesses requiring growth and development capital. A number of the businesses we actively seek to acquire are long term family run businesses where second and sometimes third generation family members are actively involved. These businesses are unique in their operations and the issues they face for the future. We equally have a unique understanding of these businesses and how we can implement strategies and plans to overcome these issues in a structured yet flexible manner. See more...

VALUE CREATION
We seek to create long term value in our investments through the implementation of strong corporate governance; working with management to develop a long term growth strategy for the business; strong financial backing to invest in organic or acquisition growth; exposure to international markets through extensive connections; an active and experienced board to guide management with all issues with a team focussed environment.
