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.

Buy and build is absolutely the best way to achieve a steeper curve on the growth. It would have taken a decade to achieve the same growth through an organic approach alone.”
