We are an independent private equity firm that invests in high growth Dynamic Situations in Europe and beyond
Our strategy - Dynamic situations
We back exceptional management teams in businesses where there is a major opportunity to create strategic value. We seek out companies where this opportunity exists through change or “Dynamic Situations”.
Where a business experiences high, sustainable growth, driven by a new source of competitive advantage or due to its strong positioning in a high growth market.
Where a company changes its business model or organisation to address shifts in its customers, markets or supply chain.
Where a major external change (e.g. regulation or privatisation) provides an opportunity to seize strategic advantage.
We bring a wealth of experience to assist entrepreneurs and management teams to realise their businesses’ full potential.
We only work with strong, entrepreneurial management teams and take an active and supportive, partnership-led approach.
We target the optimal capital structure for each deal to ensure the right balance between capital efficiency and flexibility to pursue strategic and operational objectives.
We provide support and resources to management teams to help deliver strategic initiatives, operational improvement programmes and acquisitions.
Our deals revolve around innovative and flexible transaction structures that are tailored to suit vendors, entrepreneurs and managers. This encompasses both majority and minority investments.
Vitruvian invests primary and secondary capital in rapidly growing companies to support and accelerate growth, often without debt.
Vitruvian invests alongside existing management teams in established and growing businesses, often financed by a combination of equity and debt.
Public-to-private transactions, private investments in public companies and recapitalisations.
At the heart of our business are our partners: the entrepreneurs and management teams we back; the investors in our funds; the advisers and intermediaries we work with; and the banks and other lending institutions to our deals.
We strive to build world-class businesses to generate superior returns for our partners.
Our interests must be aligned with our investors and those we back. We invest a significant portion of our own personal capital alongside our funds.
We are a small, focussed team of deal-doers. Our partners deal directly with decision makers. They will not be required to endure bureaucracy.
Our deals are founded on partnerships. We make decisions through consensus in an open and transparent manner.
