What makes us different

We offer a genuine alternative to a trade sale or traditional private equity

We do not believe in overburdening companies with debt, mandating strategy or replacing management teams. We back the management teams to run their businesses, while building quality relationships to support the company. The quality of the relationships we have, drives the quality of our businesses and investments.

Our investment structure is flexible

We are flexible, ensuring we structure the investment to include what is most important to you. We encourage management and shareholders to invest alongside us, providing the opportunity to realise value from the companies they have created while benefiting from the future growth of the company.

We deliver reliable, long-term support

We invest our own funds, taking a long-term view (typically at least 5-8 years) with no fixed requirement to sell the business. We are a fully independent team with no external shareholders influencing the investment and strategy.

We ensure balance sheet strength

We are committed to sustainable growth . We want to ensure our portfolio companies maintain a strong balance sheet with sufficient liquidity for growth.

We provide more than just investment

With the backing of the broader Newable Group, we are able to support in areas such as HR, Tax and Finance, as well as provide advice on international growth and business financing. We are a trusted partner providing the investment and support to help SMEs in their next stage of growth.
