The company

Alcumus is a global market leader in technology-led risk management and compliance solutions that allow seamless interactions between enterprises and their contractors and suppliers. It offers a unique breadth of technology-enabled offerings which are critical to worker protection and compliance with regulations and international standards.

The Inflexion investment

Inflexion first backed Alcumus in late 2015. The business was sold to funds advised by Apax Partners LLP in 2021 and Inflexion subsequently acquired a minority shareholding through its Partnership Capital Fund.

The Inflexion difference

Under Inflexion’s prior ownership from 2015-2022, we used our extensive M&A experience to support Alcumus to complete six strategic acquisitions and successfully expand internationally. Inflexion also supported the management team to build a scalable platform providing a unified solution to its customers, improve the value proposition, and strengthen the company’s ESG offering.

Inflexion is supporting Alcumus’s long-term growth plans which are backed by an ambitious management team, strong market position and growing global demand.
