We consider all later stage transaction types including MBOs, MBIs, IBOs, P2Ps, complex carve-outs, secondary purchases and replacement capital.
Often we invest in businesses that have great potential but are trapped in negative thinking or the wrong ownership structure. Invariably, they’re fighting short-term problems instead of looking for ideal outcomes.
A key attribute for us is honesty and establishing a two-way relationship based on transparency and trust. Once this is established we can begin to address the challenges they face together.
We focus on specific business opportunities rather than any particular sector, although as a rule we normally avoid investments where success is likely to depend on external events rather than controllable actions.
Rutland Partners focuses on businesses headquartered in the UK worth £20-150 million and needing £10-50 million of equity.
