A global outlook

Our global outlook is reflected in the geographical spread of our investors, the diversity of our staff and the opportunities we pursue

Our investors are drawn from across the world, with two-thirds based outside Europe. 

Western Europe, in particular the stronger economies such as the UK and Germany, has been the focus of our investment so far. We have looked beyond Europe when opportunities have met our investment criteria. Of the 33 businesses Terra Firma has invested in, five have been headquartered outside Europe.

Many of our portfolio businesses have extensive overseas operations, several in emerging markets. Currently, over 22% of the revenues of our portfolio comes from outside Europe.

We have a diverse and talented staff. Our employees come from 20 countries and speak 25 languages.
