We develop individual strategies, which focus on growth, performance and maximizing profits through value creation. All of the companies we acquire are carefully selected, managed and monitored, with members of our senior team actively leading them forward, employing passion and knowledge directly, whilst working alongside the existing management teams.
Institutional-quality due diligence: Deep screening criteria to inform valuations, relying not just on financial performance, but the presence of a quantifiable competitive advantage/intrinsic value (such as a process or product or market), proven track record, and the opportunity to create additional value. Avoidance of businesses built around individuals or individual expertise ensures value endures even if the acquisition target management leaves.
Active management: Our top-level management entity optimizes the workings of the Group’s companies, adding value through cost reduction, R&D, and topline and margin enhancement.
