Investment Approach

Alcuin specialises in making growth capital, or development capital investments in profitable smaller-middle market companies.

Our typical investment range is between £2 and £10 million per transaction, although our funding relationships allow us to invest more if required. We also invest in buyouts, buy-ins and recapitalisations, as well as providing growth or development capital.

Alcuin is a supportive, lead investor, with a strong preference for owner-managed businesses. We will invest in both minority and majority transactions, focussing instead on working with excellent management teams. Managing a relatively small portfolio, we are able to offer advice and support in areas including international expansion, acquisitions, re-financing and exit.

Please feel free to contact us for more information, and have a look at our previous investments and examples of successful companies we have backed over the last twenty five years.
