Active portfolio management

Our vision is to be the most sought-after private equity manager in Europe, being the partner of choice for best management teams in our sectors, helping them succeed and to scale their businesses into industry champions.

By virtue of the fact that HgCapital repeatedly invests in specific kinds of business models, our dedicated Portfolio Management Team has been able to tailor a differentiated and complementary approach to ownership. Following each investment, our Portfolio Management Team works with management teams on the operational levers that are key to performance in an HgCapital ‘sweet spot’ business model, such as sales operations, digital marketing and customer success. The nature of support provided by HgCapital can take a variety of forms. At Board level, we typically appoint a member of the Portfolio team as a non-executive director responsible for applying active, results-oriented corporate governance. Beyond the boardroom, members of our Portfolio team provide either direct support through hands-on best practice project work, or collaborate with management teams to draw on expertise from our specialist network, especially our Operating Partners who each bring a specific, operational specialism to company situations.

We also hold several functional best practice forums each year for our management teams, with over 250 executives attending across Sales, Customer Success, Finance, HR and other areas in any given year. These forums help promote knowledge-sharing, expertise and best-practice across our portfolio companies.
