Partners For Growth

The Puma Private Equity team works in partnership with entrepreneurs and advisors to unlock the potential in their businesses.

Our investment assessment focuses on the strength of your management team, the robustness of your business plan and the quality of your revenues. A typical investment will be £2m to £10m into a profitable business with a clear vision for growth. Investments may be equity or a combination of equity and debt.

 

We provide capital for development and expansion. We support internal investment, such as product development or key hires and buy-and-build strategies. We'll also consider partial exits and refinancing as part of larger growth plans.
