This approach requires our investment team to gain in-depth first hand knowledge of our portfolio companies. Our culture allows us to build our performance by investing in world-class businesses with durable competitive advantages acquired at bargain prices.

Capevest playbook

We are prepared to roll up our sleeves and our playbook involves an  active ownership model and includes tools focused on driving growth and developing portfolio companies through digitalisation, sustainability and operational excellence.

Outstanding management teams

We seek to be associated with the highest quality business managers, in terms of ability, integrity and shareholder focus. We seek to establish positive and productive relationships. We are content to back the right teams by taking a minority stake without any catches.

Exit strategy

Capevest actively manages its portfolio companies to maturity, setting the strategy and business plan of each business and driving its execution. In order to unlock the value of the companies in which it invests and which it manages, Capevest sets exit options prior to making an investment.

Our definition of value relates to purchasing businesses that generate streams of sustainable free cash flow at cheap multiples on an absolute basis and relative to comparable companies.
