Innovative buy-out investor/advisor hybrid; Independence Capital focus on two key markets 1) enabling leaders and management who have previously scaled & exited on behalf of other funds and 2) skilled but transactionally inexperienced management teams within high-performing owner-managed SMEs. Independence is a strategy agnostic, management friendly minority investor, built around bespoke solutions from passive high-net-worth capital and alternative credit funds, engineered solely to create structures where management retain control whilst also maximising their equity award a multiple beyond where traditional private equity would transact. Management teams often value the end-to-end partner support which goes beyond transacting and instead affords them a valued sounding board and resource to take any MBO/MBI (organic or buy-build) strategy forward in a fashion according to management aspirations rather than fund dicta.
The team focuses on supporting buy-out activity in the EV range £2m-50m but has transacted outside of this range by exception and is looking forward to collaborating with IR Global partners around the world to maximise their network effects.Show more +
