ACP’s investment strategy is a function of the two way flow of information between management and investors.
Whilst all opportunities may be assessed, we recognise the commercial advantages our investors and their wealth of experience provide us. Therefore, our overwhelming focus is on internally generated deal flow. To that end we encourage our investors to look towards us as much as a source of capital as they do a source of deals, enabling them to leverage the platform’s deep pool of resources and globally renowned peer group.
Our entrepreneur driven merchant banking model ensures a prominent position within the deal food chain of our specific areas of focus. We consider this to be a significant commercial advantage and something that differentiates us from traditional private equity.
From an investee company’s perspective, we are able to leverage the management and technical infrastructures from within our investors’ varied businesses, to help validate and vindicate business plans, as well as emerging technologies. The ultimate objective is to become a genuine business development partner, activating new distribution channels and creating satisfied customers – benefitting our portfolio companies, our investors and generating a positive return.
