About private equity

Private equity aims to create long-term value by transforming businesses away from the public markets

As a private equity investment firm, we typically raise private equity funds from large institutional investors such as pension funds, financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, and family offices. By investing in private equity, these institutions aim to seek higher returns to improve their overall performance. 

The private equity funds we raise are used to acquire asset-backed businesses that can be transformed through fundamental change. As a private equity firm, we aim to create long-term value by transforming businesses away from the public markets. We search for opportunities which have been overlooked. We actively seek out investments in sectors which may be out of favour and in businesses which have been under-managed or under-capitalised. 

Through a combination of strategic change, improved management and sustained investment, we transform our private equity portfolio businesses, creating value for all our stakeholders. These healthier companies are subsequently sold or listed on the public stock markets to realise a return for the investors in our funds.

"Private equity has done an extraordinary job over the years of redefining and reinvigorating businesses that have experienced turbulent times and required new business models"
