The business services sector encompasses a wide range of activities, often with very different business dynamics. These range from relatively mature, low margin and/or cyclical businesses, to nascent, higher-growth businesses offering specialist niche or value-added services.
We are attracted to consolidation opportunities within the sector, which is largely populated by medium-sized businesses, and companies that can demonstrate strong organic growth with good visibility and long-term customer relationships.
Within the financial services sector we are interested in both regulated and non-regulated businesses, and in particular we have a strong track record of investing in the consumer and speciality finance market and support services.
The financial services sector is a core part of the economy within each of our principal territories, and specific sub-sectors have particularly attractive market dynamics and provide attractive opportunities for investment.
