As owner managers ourselves, we understand the highs and lows of running a successful company.
We balance our input in supporting and challenging management teams while giving them the space to run the business day to day.
Our straight-talking, down-to-earth approach is valued by owner managers who tell us how much they appreciate our integrity and honesty.
What We Do
Our partners have over 80 years’ fund management expertise within the UK lower mid-market. Through our experience, track record and specialist teams we understand the key principles of running a fast growing, successful company and the pitfalls to avoid. From pre deal stage we work with management teams and their advisors to assess the growth strategy, identify profit activities and agree where further investment and resource is required. It is important to us that all parties share the same vision. We gain transparency and openness and collectively do the right thing which drives results and achieves great returns.
The team at Palatine take a real-world view, they don’t force a KPI from A to B. They provide a steer, challenge and step in when necessary, yet give management teams the space to deliver on what’s been agreed which is why our partnership worked very well.
Chief Financial Officer – Westleigh
The Palatine team has been very supportive. They have worked as an ‘enabler’ – sitting alongside us at the top table, working with us to define our priority value creation opportunities. Its been great having an interested team of investors, always available for calls and always there when we want to bounce ideas around.
