Private Equity

Spotting strategic relationships and opportunities

Insight and partnership

We seek private equity returns by providing capital and expertise with a focus on investing for the long-term and through economic cycles. Our aim is to be the investment partner of choice for private equity funds, other long-term investment institutions, founders and management teams.


With a focus on agility and transparency, we can execute large, complex global transactions across the capital structure in varying investment sizes.


We look for investment partners with a strong track record, a demonstrated value creation strategy, strong value orientation and best-in-class governance standards. We invest in companies that demonstrate a strong market position, an attractive cash flow profile, resilience through economic cycles and a top-tier management team.
