Consumer and Leisure
We believe that an uncompromising focus on the needs of the customer enables businesses to enjoy sustained loyalty, especially during times of rapidly changing consumer demand.
By building a deep understanding of consumer needs and tailoring its proposition to clearly defined segments, a company can outperform its peers and take advantage of evolving distribution channels. We have a strong track record of investing in Consumer & Leisure businesses and have helped companies pursue ambitious growth 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, competing on the strength of their differentiation rather than on cost.
