To select businesses where the Manager can add substantial value it applies a deep sector focus, primarily targeting:
- Buyouts in TMT companies between £20 million and £500 million;
- Buyouts in the Services and Industrials sectors between £100 million and £500 million; and
- Renewable power generating projects using proven technologies.
These markets offer many companies with proven financial performance within their chosen industry.
Investments are made predominantly in unquoted companies across Northern Europe, where the Manager is confident that value can be created through a pro-active partnership with management teams, drawing on both sector and operational expertise to drive consistent growth.
