Private companies

Some of the world’s most exciting, disruptive and rapidly growing businesses are in private markets. We aim to help them succeed by investing on your behalf.

Why invest in private companies?

We search for exceptional private companies and aim to enable them to radically reinvent industries as varied as healthcare, transport, media and finance. These innovators use technology to reshape economies and societies, offering a view into the future that can inform other investments. By giving these firms patient capital and supporting decisions that may take years to pay off, we can tilt the odds in their favour. And you gain access to what can be a stage of rapid growth before they list.

How do we invest in private companies?

In just over a decade, we’ve established ourselves as a partner of choice for founders thanks to our long time horizon and thoughtful approach.  

We focus on late-stage private companies and can invest more once they go public and as our belief in their potential grows. The goal is that your returns grow and compound over time. This gives you access to value-creation opportunities that can span decades.
