8 Best in Class Private Equity firms, together since 2009

Investments so far
Years of Experience
*as on Dec 2015
Together, we have eight times the business building experience of the average mid-market firm. With a shared database of 350 completed investments, experience is just a click away for every person in the Global PE Alliance. That experience makes us better owners and partners. We can also put our CEOs and senior management in touch directly with likeminded peers from around the world - either from the same sector, or who are pursuing the same strategic or operational opportunities, or both.
“Our people” means not just Our people. It means our combined global network of executives and non-executives, consultants, head-hunters, legal, financial, operational and environmental advisors and other experts. We share all of this so each and every company we invest in can benefit from our combined expertise and resources from across the world.
The Global PE Alliance is made up of 8 Private Equity firms, all top-tier in their own geographies. To remain as valuable as we can be to the companies we invest in, every year our partners get together to refresh our thinking and approach to business building. Applying the 'best from the best' is the most effective way we’ve found to stay cutting edge for our investee businesses. It’s like a CEO having 7 other trusted CEOs from the same sector “on-tap” to challenge and collaborate with. Individually, we are best in class, together we are unique.
Best in Class
Partners in the alliance co-invest with each other so that they have a stake in each and every business. In an increasingly inter-connected world, even companies pursuing a local strategy benefit from keeping the global context in mind. For companies with international aspirations, alliance firms work together to make joint investments where that will bring edge to investee companies. As more mid-market businesses cross borders to operate internationally, we expect to be doing more of this.
