As a Manchester private equity house, we're lucky to be based in King Street, the historic centre of the banking industry in the North West of England, and now the modern retail and business hub of Manchester, making it the perfect location for a private equity firm. 

Leading Manchester private equity firm

We've backed a number of Manchester based businesses, including Cheadle-based online holiday retailer, On the Beach, in 2007. On The Beach, which now lists on the London Stock Exchange, specialises in dynamic booking of short and medium haul holidays to Europe. We worked with the founder to build a market-leading team and following a more than threefold increase in sales On The Beach was sold to another private equity firm in 2013.

M247 (formerly Metronet (UK)) is the UK's fastest growing connectivity provider, and is headquartered in Hulme, just south of Manchester city centre. We invested in 2014 and following successful acquisitions of Manchester based internet infrastructure company M247, and London's Venus Business Communications, the rebranded group has expanded from its Manchester base across the UK and Europe.
