Vision Capital brings a creative flexible capital approach to its equity investment and financing activities, leveraging its specialist expertise and experience in both the dynamics of private equity funds and the strategic development of mid-sized companies. We always seek to deliver the objectives of our transaction counterparties, while positioning the businesses involved to pursue their potential, cutting through any complexities to do so.
We believe in maximising the potential of the businesses that we invest in through a disciplined, transparent governance framework which includes:
- setting a clear strategic direction for the medium to longer term
- aligning with high performing management teams
- executing value creating strategic acquisitions and disposals
- implementing operational initiatives focused on growth and effectiveness
- establishing a prudent capital structure that supports business development
We support all these elements using our extensive international network.
We invest in a variety of sectors, preferring Financial Services, Industrials and Consumer. We target profitable businesses with robust market positions and strategic potential, typically worth $50-500m at acquisition. We do not invest as active owners in early stage businesses, commodities or any businesses with products harmful to health.
Launched in 2016, our Principal Finance business has been established to provide private, flexible and cost-efficient financing for investment funds or other owners of portfolios of companies for a range of different purposes: to enable company growth initiatives, debt repayment, acquisitions and investor liquidity. Transaction sizes are anticipated to range from $25-500 million through a variety of structures, including preferred equity and debt.
