Our private equity business has been active since 1993 and holds a portfolio of companies globally. We look to execute not only typical leveraged buyout acquisitions but also corporate partnerships and industry consolidations. In all cases we enact friendly transactions with the full support of the companies in which we are investing. We focus on fundamental value creation and strengthen strategy and operations to realise investor value.
Our London base looks after the European fundraising aspects of our private equity businesses. This office is also responsible for building proprietary deal flow, evaluating transactions and performing due diligence on companies outside of South Africa. Additionally, our London presence allows us to provide support, whether commercial or financial, to those businesses within our portfolio which have an international aspect to their business.
