It takes extraordinary commitment, deep passion and a lot of sacrifice to build a high-performing business. We respect and appreciate the business you have built and seek to only further your legacy as entrepreneurs. As equity partners, we will invest time into fully understanding your values and vision upfront. Post investment, we endeavour to be a conscious, thoughtful, and trusted partner, especially during challenging times. Should it ever be needed, our partners have access to a wealth of resources and expertise drawn from across our network of affiliates.
Based on experience from several opportunities, we believe that True North is the perfect home for your business if and when you decide to divest a majority stake in it. Post investment, we work empathetically with the existing team to identify the business's strengths and build on them whilst retaining its underlying ethos and character.
We genuinely believe that investment transaction processes should take minimal time of the management team – whose time better spent on business building. With this philosophy and recognising the importance of a fair market valuation to a company, we remain committed to achieving win-win deal terms, with early deal certainty and a swift conclusion.
After spending several years at large multinationals or conglomerates, many business leaders feel the urge to become entrepreneurs themselves. Doing so requires a sympathetic and supportive financial partner – one who shares your vision and values. To date, we have partnered with over 50 business leaders, and remain committed to working hand-in-hand to generate returns, delivering boundless value for all stakeholders.
Our business management team plays a supportive role and works closely with business leaders to realise the full potential of the business.
We firmly believe that the real sustainable difference for any business is its culture. Many conglomerates and multinationals find this ethos aligns with their own philosophy, making our partner companies a very good fit into their business portfolio. This creates a win-win situation where our partner companies find a large platform to flourish and multinationals find an excellent opportunity to expand their portfolio.
We are fully committed to transparency at every stage of the deal process. Over time, we aim to build a reputation where buyers are comfortable buying equity stakes from us with limited due diligence.
We understand that Limited Partners repose a tremendous amount of trust when they commit capital into any of our funds.
