We are active, entrepreneurial investors, with a dedicated focus and approach to the lower mid-market.

We are an ambitious team and look to build enduring relationships with management teams we partner with and work together to create value.

We are experienced in transacting across a wide range of situations and pride ourselves on our flexible approach. We invest in minority or majority shareholding positions and have no set time horizon to an exit.

We invest between £3m and £20m of equity to support companies that:

  • Are established and profitable;
  • Are headquartered in the UK or Ireland and
  • Have significant growth and development potential.

We will consider a range of investment situations, including:

  • Owners that want to sell their business in full or just a minority shareholding;
  • Management teams who wish to buy their business through a management buy-out or management buy-out / buy-in;
  • Management teams who want to raise capital to accelerate business growth, either organically, through a roll-out or via acquisition; and
  • Entrepreneurs that want to de-risk and crystallise value but still have the ambition to achieve more.

"We met with a small number of investors that target the lower mid-market and Chiltern impressed us with their sector understanding and a preparedness to roll their sleeves up to support us as a management team. We appreciate their direct and straightforward approach and we’re benefitting from working alongside them." Rob Hankin, Perfect Image CEO
