We believe that an uncompromising focus on the needs of the customer is the key to building a successful consumer business. Companies with such a focus enjoy sustained customer loyalty, even in a rapidly changing market environment. Through building a deep understanding of customer needs, a company can outperform its peers by tailoring its propositions to a distinct target group, and by taking advantage of evolving distribution channels.

We have a strong track record of investing in Consumer & Leisure businesses and, in particular, have helped a number of companies to pursue ambitious roll-out strategies in the UK and overseas.

We seek to invest in companies that have a unique customer proposition and a high level of customer loyalty, and compete on the strength of their differentiation rather than price. We are interested in investing in companies across the Consumer & Leisure industry, including in hospitality, travel, branded products and retail.
