Creating the UK’s leading ski and specialist holiday brand
  • Following Livingbridge’s investment in 2006 Enigma continued its high levels of growth, and at the end of the investment period were in a terrific position to continue that trajectory, through their acquisition by Hotelplan to create UK’s leading ski and specialist holiday brand.
  • Daniel Smith, partner at Livingbridge, commented at exit, “We are very pleased with our successful investment in the Enigma Travel Group and delighted to have shared the latest four years of the Enigma team’s journey with them.
