Why Rutland

A special situations private equity investor with a difference

How We Help


We are committed to a highly differentiated special situations investment strategy.  Our approach is to help businesses work through challenges, difficult transitions or deliver complex change to reach their full potential.


We view complexity not as a challenge but as an opportunity to combat inertia, change the culture of a business and to use that momentum to implement a sustainable value-creation strategy.


Our mission isn’t just to provide equity.  We firmly believe that a fresh perspective and a healthy interaction with management is the key to delivering results.  This often requires refinements in the strategy of the business to be delivered through an agreed business plan.


Our experience is very broad and has been gained in over 30 years of investing in many sectors, over multiple economic cycles and across all major transaction types.  Your company will be well supported with Rutland as an investor.

Engaging with Managers


Our ethos is to establish a close relationship with the management team from the first day of engagement; actively supporting and empowering them to drive change throughout the business over the course of the investment.


It is vital that our managers provide strong leadership and take ownership of the delivery of the agreed plan.  So establishing a two-way relationship based on transparency and trust is key.


Our hands-on style of active engagement helps to establish strong partnerships with our management teams.  This is important in enabling us to be a supportive investor with the ability to react quickly and decisively in the support of key business decisions.


Our wealth of experience helps us to bring fresh ideas, money, momentum and energy.  By working together with quality management teams we are able to jointly drive our investments forward towards a successful exit.
