Why become an Investor Partner?
Although we appraise hundreds of potential deals each year, we invest in only a small number which satisfy our strict criteria and where the transaction offers the target return profile for our investor base. Every prospective investee company is subject to a rigorous process of due diligence, both by Maven’s investment team and third-party, expert advisers.
Maven’s regionally based investment and portfolio executives are well placed to support investee companies across the UK, and work closely with each management team from the outset to support business growth. We have a proven record of adding value to private businesses in order to drive growth across the portfolio, where our approach is to understand both the numbers and the future trading prospects for portfolio companies.
A Maven executive is also invariably appointed to the board, with a key objective of playing an active role post-investment in the strategic direction of the business. That includes helping the management team to define and evolve its business plan, appointing new senior executives where appropriate, and facilitating new, mutually beneficial business introductions with other investee companies.
Our executives also work with each management team from the outset to develop an exit strategy. This will involve identifying prospective ultimate buyers for the business, even where a formal sale process is some years away.
