Duke Street is a leading UK private equity firm, which has been investing in the European mid-market buyout space since 1988. As well as managing funds, we also offer our investors access to co-investments on a direct basis.
Our investment strategy focuses on four sectors: industrials, services, healthcare and consumer. These are sectors which we know and understand well, bringing to each of them the deep industry knowledge of our operating partners and a proven track record of successfully building companies, both through value creating acquisitions and organic growth. These companies are typically valued between €75M and €350M although we will do smaller transactions where there is an opportunity to invest further capital; for instance, in a buy and build strategy.
We cover a broad range of industrials sub-sectors including Aerospace & Defence, Industrial Equipment, Paper & Packaging and Industrial Services. We look to invest in businesses that display the following characteristics:
- defensive market position, e.g. high barriers to entry, strong product or process IP;
- exposure to growing end-markets, with opportunities to achieve superior organic growth and/or sector consolidation; and
- scope for operational transformation through further capital investment in the business, backing existing management or organising a transition for existing shareholders.
Our mission is to accelerate the growth of the companies we back, creating value for everyone involved in our investments. We invest in management teams which have a real ambition to succeed. We do this in a driven and collegiate way, with a mix of highly experienced investment and operating partners, who all share the same straightforward values. This is what attracts the best owners and managers to work with us.
