Playing a part in and watching founder-managers realise the maximum possible with their businesses. It is incredibly rewarding to be a part of step-changing a business – be that via strategic evolution, entering new markets, or M&A – and the highs (as well as any bumps in the road) help to foster relationships that I have no doubt will last a long time.
I think it is knowing where we can and cannot add value. Our style of investing is all about backing managers we believe in and who are proven at what they do. Whilst we can really help when it comes to things like key hiring, M&A and board level strategic discussion, we leave the day-to-day to the exceptional people we back (whilst always being available if needed!).
