Oliver Dennis, Co-founder and CEO
Fishawack Health

Our Manchester team is at the forefront of the North West’s private equity market having invested £850m to back more than 65 management teams.

We have helped to build some of the country’s fastest growing companies across diverse sectors ranging from food & drink to healthcare, travel, technology and support services.

Our exciting North West portfolio currently includes companies such as Love Energy Savings, SRL Traffic Systems and Hill Biscuits, many of which have a notable impact on the local economy.

We have recently welcomed occupational health and well-being provider PAM, market-leading supplier of redeployable surveillance solutions WCCTV, digital learning provider Omniplex and designer and manufacturer of premium accessories for light commercial vehicles, Rhino Products to our portfolio.

In 2020 we completed a number of exits including Eque2, where a trio of acquisitions drove an EBITDA increase of 85%, Mitrefinch, where turnover grew to £24m through investment and international expansion and Fishawack Health, where during our three-year partnership we provided a further £18.5m of follow on funding to support the management team to complete five international acquisitions.

For three years we have also partnered with the Manchester Evening News to help uncover the region’s most ambitious firms as part of the MEN Business of the Year Awards.

An active part of the regional business community, we are based at 82 King Street in the former home of the Bank of England in Manchester.
