Governance arrangements 

Management body

The management body and committees of Inflexion are described below. Collectively, the management body is tasked to define and oversee the implementation of governance arrangements of the Firm that ensure effective and prudent management.

The governance Committees of the Firm are:

Executive Committee (ExCo)

The ExCo meets at least 10 times a year. This committee looks after strategic objectives operational management, including resourcing requirements for the Firm. Minutes of these meetings are taken with actions formally recorded for discussion at the next meeting.

Investment Committee (IC)

The IC meets weekly and more regularly as required. Inflexion has one Investment Committee that discusses preliminary and final investment recommendations, with a view to encouraging a robust pipeline of investment activity. It ensures Inflexion maintains a consistent application of its investment strategy, supporting maintenance of its strong returns track record. Minutes and follow up actions are taken of all meetings. Substantially the same Investment Committee has been in place since Inflexion’s first fund.

Realisation Committee (RC)

The RC meets weekly and as required. This committee discusses preliminary and final exit recommendations, with a view to encouraging a robust pipeline of exit activity and ensuring best practice in order to derive maximum value.

Operations Committee (OpCo)

The OpCo meets every two months and as required. The Operations Committee is instrumental in overseeing the management of operational risk, and reports into the Executive Committee.

Responsible Investment Steering Committee (RISC)

The RISC meets at least 10 times a year. Inflexion’s RISC operates to set the Firm’s core ESG agenda and ensure it is carried out across all business functions and makes recommendations to the Executive Committee and Investment Committee for approval as appropriate.

Valuation Committee

The Valuation Committee meets quarterly. The Valuation Committee directly and closely assists Inflexion's rigorous valuation review process and helps sign off all valuations.

IT Steering Committee

The IT Steering Committee meets every six weeks. This committee owns the overall Inflexion IT strategy and provides strategic direction for IT-related projects, establishes Inflexion’s IT priorities, as well as a governance framework to support these project and initiatives. The committee reports into OpCo for minor strategic and budgetary decisions and ExCo for significant strategic and budgetary decisions.


The number of directorships (executive and non-executive roles) held by each member of the management body is set out in the table below:

Managing Board Member


External directorships held

Florencia Kassai

Head of Buyout


David Whileman

Head of Partnership Capital


Malcolm Coffin

Head of Enterprise


Andrew Priest

Chief of Staff/ Head of Origination


Tim Smallbone

George Collier



Inflexion is not a significant SYSC firm and therefore it does not need to apply to the FCA for a waiver in order to allow a member of the management body to hold additional directorships.

Diversity policy

Inflexion is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination.

The Firm has in place a policy that covers all employees, members, consultants, contractors, interns and agency workers whether temporary, part-time or full-time and applies to all aspects of employment with (or engagement by) Inflexion, including recruitment, selection, pay, conditions, training, appraisals, career development and promotion, conduct at work, disciplinary and grievance procedures, and termination of employment/membership.

The policy confirms Inflexion’s commitment to support and promote equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace and review employment and membership practices and procedures when necessary to ensure fairness and also update them and the policy to take account of changes in the law.

Inflexion has committed to monitor the make-up of the workforce regarding information such as age, sex, ethnic background, sexual orientation, religion or belief, and disability in encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion, and in meeting the aims and commitments set out in this Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy.

Monitoring will also include assessing how the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy, and any supporting action plan, are working in practice, reviewing them annually, and considering and taking action to address any issues.

The Executive Committee has overall responsibility for the effective operation of the policies and procedures in relation to the promotion of diversity in Inflexion's workforce and for ensuring compliance with equality and anti-discrimination legislation.

Risk committee

Given the simple nature of Inflexion's business model, its governance framework is considered to be sufficient and appropriate for the nature and size of activities that it undertakes. In particular, a separate risk committee in addition to the committees referred to above is not considered necessary and Inflexion is not required to establish such a committee in accordance with MIFIDPRU 7.3.1R.

Own funds requirements 

Calculating own funds requirement

Inflexion is a non-SNI MIFIDPRU investment firm which means that its own funds requirement is the higher of its: (a) permanent minimum requirement; (b) fixed overheads requirement; and (c) K-factor requirement.

In addition, Inflexion was classified as an exempt CAD firm under the rules in force on 31 December 2021. This means that it is able to rely on the transitional provisions set out in MIFIDPRU TP 2.10R and 2.12R, with the following effect:

Permanent minimum requirement

  • from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022: £50,000;
  • from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2023: £55,000;
  • from 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2024: £60,000;
  • from 1 January 2025 to 31 December 2025: £65,000; and
  • from 1 January 2026 to 31 December 2026: £70,000.

Fixed overheads requirement

  • from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022, an amount equal to the firm’s permanent minimum capital requirement (above); and
  • from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2026, the relevant percentage specified below of the firm's fixed overheads requirement:
    • from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2023: 10%;
    • from 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2024: 25%;
    • from 1 January 2025 to 31 December 2025: 45%; and
    • from 1 January 2026 to 31 December 2026: 70%.

K-factor requirement

Same approach as for the fixed overheads requirement, with respect to the K-factor requirement.

Inflexion's fixed overheads requirement calculated in accordance with MIFIDPRU 4.5 but subject to TP 2.10R and TP 2.12R is: £50,000

Inflexion's K-factor calculated in accordance with MIFIDPRU 4.6 to 4.16 and MIFIDPRU 5 but subject to TP 2.10R and 2.12R is: £50,000, which can be broken down into:

K-AUM requirement, K-CMH requirement, and K-ASA requirement


K-COH requirement and K-DTF requirement


K-NPR requirement, K-CMG requirement, K-TCD requirement, and the K-CON requirement


Approach to assessing the adequacy of own funds

Inflexion is subject to the overall financial adequacy rule. This requires Inflexion to hold, at all times, own funds and liquid assets which are adequate, both as to their amount and their quality, to ensure that:

(a). it is able to remain financially viable throughout the economic cycle, with the ability to address any material potential harm that may result from its ongoing activities; and

(b) its business can be wound down in an orderly manner, minimising harm to consumers or to other market participants.

Inflexion utilises a number of approaches to ensure its compliance with the overall financial adequacy rule outlined above, taking into account the transitional arrangements that are available for former exempt CAD firms.

In particular, the Internal Capital Adequacy and Risk Assessment ("ICARA") process is the main tool with which the adequacy of the Firm's own funds and liquid assets is assessed and reviewed. Inflexion has in place a number of systems and procedures that enable it to identify, monitor and, if proportionate, reduce all material potential harms that the ongoing operation of the business may cause to its clients and counterparties, markets, and the Firm itself, as well as harms that may result from winding down the Firm's business. Where a material potential harm cannot be managed or mitigated after the implementation of systems and controls, Inflexion would consider whether it needs to hold additional own funds or liquid assets to address the harms. The first review of the Firm's ICARA process will be completed in 2023.

The Firm's financial resources are also modelled under ‘business as usual’ and a variety of severe yet plausible stress tests.

The ICARA process will include a wind-down plan so there is a process of ceasing operation while ensuring minimal impact to clients, and a recovery plan that identifies the recovery actions that the Firm may take to restore compliance with the threshold requirements as well as any triggers for recovery action.
