Strategic buy and build expertise

You know your market and likely potential acquisition targets – but in addition to the funding, the integration of other companies into your business and the transaction itself requires specialist M&A expertise.

With £100m available to each company we invest in, we provide follow-on funding to help your management team to make strategic business acquisitions happen. Our broader team can also provide extra support with integration.
