We buy, enhance and grow owner managed businesses

If you are thinking about selling your business, we can move quickly to help you exit with strong value.

We have committed funding in place and are currently seeking new opportunities. We aim to make your exit as smooth as possible by delivering a quick, efficient and discrete transaction that works for you, your directors and your employees.

Secure your legacy

Without the pressure of external investors, we exercise the patience needed to nurture highly successful businesses. With our experience operating SMEs, your business is safe with us.

Look after your key personnel

We appreciate that running a business is a team effort. We invest in companies where there will be management continuity and incentivise them to share in our success.

Avoid brokering fees and the hassle that may come with them

We cut out the middlemen and allow you to sell your business quickly and confidentially.  When you contact us, you will be dealing directly with the people making the investment.

Get the right deal for you

We understand that many factors will influence your decision to sell. We consider both full and partial exits and deal sympathetically with property matters to let you exit in a manner that suits both you and your team.

our promise

We want you to be as proud of your company in the future as you are today.

We will work with your existing management team to retain your values and build upon the history and reputation you have already established.

Selling your business to us brings new opportunities for your company, your staff and your customers.
