Portfolio Companies

Long-standing commitment to European mid-market investments

We have supported the European mid-market since 1985, and we have been active investors in each of our three principal markets – UK, France and Germany – as well as in the Nordic and Benelux regions.

We typically invest in high quality international businesses with an enterprise value of between €75 million and €300 million, which we look to back through their next phase of growth, which will typically include a buy & build, roll-out or expansion strategy.
