Private Equity

Our private equity division supports more established businesses which are profitable and looking to grow.

We can invest up to £10million for ambitious teams that have sound ideas, the necessary skills and most importantly a keen eye on success. The investment can be used for a range of things including finance for expansion, to support a management buy-out or buy-in, or acquisition financing.

  • We’ve backed lots of businesses in cash out transactions and so often help teams with succession planning
  • Investment start from £1million and can be as much as £10million
  • Our private equity funds can invest in all areas of the UK
During Mercia's assessment of an investment opportunity we've always found the people to be down to earth, commercial and, invariably technically as sharp as a pin. Post-investment, our clients have enjoyed Mercia's involvement in their businesses, with close, mutually respectful relationships being at the heart of the successful investment outcomes.

Mercia immediately stood out as being people they wanted to work with. It was apparent very early on that the team had a track record of bringing expertise and value creation beyond financial investment.
