Why we invested

The company operates in a fragmented market and has an impressive track record of successfully acquiring and integrating lettings branches and portfolios. This was an opportunity to back an experienced management team to pursue an ambitious buy-and-build strategy, building on our successful track record of supporting similar acquisition-led strategies in other sectors.

The story so far

Since our investment, Leaders Romans Group has successfully completed more than 100 acquisitions of branches or lettings portfolios, as well as the transformational merger of Leaders and Romans in March 2016. It has significantly expanded its geographical footprint beyond its heartland in the south of England, and now has a national network of over 160 branches and employs over 2,100 people.

We have enjoyed working with Bowmark, and have drawn on their considerable experience of helping companies to achieve strong acquisitive growth.
