Palatine Private Equity is an entrepreneurial, Partner led private equity business with a focus on backing like-minded people.
The Partners have over 60 years’ experience working with entrepreneurs and management teams in private equity backed businesses. We have generated excellent returns for the management teams we have backed and our investors.
All investment decisions are taken by the Partners who lead every transaction. We employ a highly entrepreneurial and creative approach to working with management teams and structuring transactions. We have an excellent reputation for making timely decisions and delivering on the promises that we make.
Founded in 2005, we raised our maiden £100m fund in 2007. This is now fully invested and has generated market leading returns. Our second fund is also fully invested having closed at £150m in 2013. We are currently investing from two funds, our third fund which closed in 2015 at £220m and an impact focused fund which we completed a first close on in December 2016 at £50m.
In addition to well known institutional investors, our investor base also includes a number of private investors who are successful entrepreneurs from a broad range of industries. In many cases, their input during the transaction process and post investment has proved beneficial to the management teams and the businesses we have backed.
