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.

|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.
