Partnership Capital

Inflexion’s Partnership Capital fund is the first dedicated minority investment business for the UK mid-market, giving a real alternative for shareholders of successful businesses by providing innovative solutions with a partner investor which doesn’t take a controlling stake.

Recognising that private equity can better serve these “not for sale” situations, our Partnership Capital fund only invests in minority stakes where growing businesses are seeking shareholder realisation, growth capital or support to fund acquisitions.

Whilst most private equity funds can invest in minority situations, Inflexion’s dedicated fund enables us to be the specialist. We’re different and those differences include simple, tailored investment agreements, representing the nature of the partnership, and interaction with experienced, supportive partners with an exceptional track record of collaboration in positions of influence rather than control.

The reality is we weren’t looking for an investor…to find that we could take on a minority partner whilst retaining control was very exciting. Jonathan Lewis, Founder and Managing Director, Outdoor Plus; a Partnership Capital investment Inflexion made in November 2016.
