Services

Overview

We work with government, corporate, private equity leadership to incubate and manage ventures, or restructure existing portfolio companies, addressing the critical issue of strategic value creation.  


We provide support across the entire life-cycle: from de-risking technical, operational and commercial aspects to developing and executing value-enhancing programs, and managing mission-critical organizational functions at key times.

Corporate Development & Transaction Support

Combining a robust process driven approach and deep industry experience, we provide the critical data-driven insights needed for strategic decision making, and help our clients make deliberate choices to manage opportunities and risks. 


We bring a broad range of backgrounds and capabilities to assist our clients with defining and executing their non-organic growth strategies, and enable the newly incubated entities, integrations or strategic partnerships to succeed. 


Strategy Implementation

Our focus is to help clients solve pressing business issues—not simply prepare plans. We work alongside client teams to design actionable strategies and manage the related programs. Through this hands-on and risk-sharing approach, our clients benefit from:


  • Efficiency – we add muscle, where it is needed, to get things done.
  • Effectiveness – with programme management experience spanning transformations, capability building, new-business incubation and operational improvements, we understand how to effectively operationalise strategy.
  • Accountability – we take ownership of problems and their solutions, rather than preparing reports, plans or recommendations 
  • Focus – we recognize what matters and what to ignore, breaking down large-scale strategy deployments into smaller, discrete initiatives that yield results more quickly

 

Operating Partners

Operational improvements, harnessing human capital, and shrewd capital allocation are the keys to building value long-term. Within our focus sectors, we are able to deploy resources with deep functional expertise and industry experience to materially create value; building the companies into stronger, more competitive and more profitable enterprises.


We tailor our approach as appropriate:

  • undertaking line management executive roles, assuming management responsibility
  • in an advisory role to provide robust, frank, independent advice
  • adopting a consultancy approach to support already capable management teams
  • assuming Non-Executive governance roles


As operating partners, we are typically involved in pre-deal phases – during the due-diligence – spending time to vet the company, identifying operational weaknesses, value-enhancement opportunities.
