All our deals have one thing in common. They start from a blank sheet of paper.
At MML, we create value from original thinking, designing deals which enable management teams to take the next step on their journey.
We focus on a small number of investments where the business case is strong and the chemistry with people is right. As an independent firm, our Partners take personal responsibility for our part in your success.
In our experience, open minds mean better deals, so we take a fresh approach to every single investment.
For management teams
We want to create a deal that will grow your business, not just get your business.
MML is a true partnership investor, focused on investing alongside management owners.
We do not bring a "control" mentality to the table. We understand our role is to work alongside management, providing capital and strategic support to help deliver transformational growth.
Our focus is on achieving sustainable value creation over the medium term. We recognise that to achieve this there is often a need to invest ahead of the curve to support expansion, M&A and innovation, sometimes at the expense of short-term profit.
The businesses we back benefit from short lines of communication and consistent points of contact with our Partners who are experienced decision makers.
We are a leading international provider of tailored partnership capital to growing companies in Europe and the US.
Our capital is typically used to support strong management teams to deliver a realignment of shareholder incentives, acquisitions and other bold expansion plans.
Our investee companies are typically growing, B2B focused, profitable and cash generative.
We leverage our significant experience to provide financial, operational and strategic support to our investee companies.
The combination of our tailored approach (investing across the capital structure), international transacting capability and direct engagement with owner managers provides for a highly differentiated investment strategy.
We listen to your vision
“We are naturally curious. We want to understand what makes both you and your business tick. How can our investment help you realise your vision?”
Richard Mayers, Partner
We deliver a bespoke deal
"The deal needs to fit the management team and business. We are not selling a fixed product. From the way we engage to the deal we deliver, everything should feel personal."
Luke Jones, Partner
We leverage our experience
“Our longevity has given us a huge depth of experience to support you on your journey. In making over 140 investments across three decades we have learnt a thing or two.”
Ian Wallis, co-CEO
We bring a global perspective
"With "boots on the ground" in the US and across Europe, we have strong experience of helping our portfolio companies grow internationally."
Henry-Louis Merieux, Partner
Our approach to partnership investing
"We recognise we are being invited into the businesses that we back and to make this work effectively requires real creativity and a partnership mentality."
