Backing ambition in the regions

Growing companies want a different kind of investment. One that goes beyond just finance. They are looking for capital that is crafted around their need to scale, take control of their business’ growth through investment or finance an immediate business need. That’s why we offer a complete connected capital solution.

Before you build the future, let’s talk about what investment you need today.

The future isn’t built by dreamers it is built by doers

Accelerating growth, realising value, and tracking success

Growth is a journey and the level of risk and investment will be very different along the way. Whether you are looking to exit in a shorter time horizon or to want to keep growing over the long-term, we can draw upon various pools of capital across our asset classes to provide you with the appropriate levels of cash at the right time.

Our success is unhindered by our ability to provide follow-on funding, leverage co-investment or force us to exit investments before the time is right. At each stage of your growth, we are ready with the right capital, the right team and the right support.
