What is our purpose? 

What is our purpose and why do we exist?  Very simple really. We want to make businesses more valuable. Private equity in particular has changed the rules of the game. We bring our vast experience earned at the helm of fast growing companies and with the best private equity players to the broader corporate world. The large majority of our work is undertaken for private equity houses but our purpose is to make businesses more valuable regardless of who owns them. We feel strongly from many years of working with the best PE executives and the most capable Chief Executives across all industries that we  can offer many general lessons that a leader should consider to get the most out of his or her business.  

To make your company more valuable

Some of what we bring will sound familiar and even obvious. However, in many cases it is not being rigorously applied, for two reasons

  • These applications drive real change and this brings risks both real and imagined, and change is not popular 
  • And secondly many leaders find it easier to accept ‘fine’ rather than ‘best’. We call that underperformance and can never accept it 

Your most important task as a leader is to make your company more valuable. The best PE investors do exactly that. Our knowledge and experience comes from working with the best. We have assembled some of the best Operating Partners available. We really mean that. Available to private equity and to your company. Quite simply to make it more valuable than before you engaged us.

600 years’ cumulative experience

We advise with absolute conviction of the value we add to portfolio companies. Why? Because we’ve been where you are and we’ve stood in your shoes.
