The relative attractiveness of different sectors will ebb and flow with economic cycles and changes in technology, consumer preferences, distribution methods and government policy. Equally, the key requirements for a successful investment will evolve. We have consistently adapted and refined our approach to reflect this changing environment. Since the early 1990s, we have developed a detailed understanding of a broad range of sectors and built up an extensive range of contacts who source and advise us on new opportunities.
Many of our portfolio companies operate across multiple sectors, which makes our breadth of knowledge and experience invaluable. All our investments are significantly driven and enhanced by technology, and are benefitting from our experience across the broader TMT sector and of implementing technological change programmes over many years. We have introduced or developed digital marketing platforms, data-driven customer acquisition / retention programmes and SEO / PPC optimisation into all of our B2B service businesses. We have also been able to deploy our business services expertise across a broad range of end-markets, including financial services, industrial services, energy, automotive, health and care, education and leisure.
