Since 2012, we’ve invested in more than 25 businesses across the sector with a combined enterprise value of more than £2bn to help them grow.
The business services sector is absolutely integral to the UK economy. The industry is broad and we have particular experience supporting those that specialise in professional advisory, asset management and logistics.
We’re helping management teams in these sub-sectors to face up to some key challenges – including how to stay competitive in an age of rapid digitalisation.
We see significant opportunities for growth in business services – whether through executing effective buy-and-build strategies, expanding into new and international markets or creating a point of difference. This is underpinned by our extensive network of Non-Executive Directors, who each have decades of sector experience under their belt.
Our current portfolio includes a diverse range of businesses including Star Live, The Barrister Group, Idwal Marine Services, Stonbury, Lucida Group, Global Autocare, Mosaic and Independent Governance Group.
