At Liverpool Partners, we believe that superior financial returns can be provided from investments in responsible and sustainable businesses.
Where business investments are concerned, we’re interested in the future. As such, we look to invest in businesses whose themes and industry sectors we expect to be intergenerational. These businesses are not based on current trends or fads – which come with the risk of not being relevant in the future. Instead, they are built upon solid foundations which we expect to continue to deliver for many decades to come.
We invest in businesses targeting rapid growth and then support them to achieve it. We align the interests of investors, management teams and partner shareholders, ensuring the appropriate capital structure, team and environment is established to support all strategic and growth objectives. This ensures we maximise investor returns.
Furthermore, we provide the business with hands on support, working with existing management teams to facilitate strategic and focused business plans, aligned to long-term objectives. We also support the oversight of implementation plans, develop reporting and risk management frameworks, help future-proof systems and, design organisational structures for growth and succession plans. All of which supports sustainable growth over the long-term.
Today’s business environment demands more from businesses in respect to their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments. We believe this increased focus on ESG will only become more critical to investors, employees and clients in the future.
Built on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, our ESG framework ensures we integrate ESG considerations across all stages of the private equity investment cycle from initial screening to exit, including detailed ESG due diligence.
As respectful, but active investors, we work closely with our management teams to help them take on some of the responsibility for the challenges we face environmentally and societally. We help to create an efficient and effective ESG framework and our regular engagement in defining and progressing ESG priorities helps to ensure responsible and sustained business success.
We focus on improving outcomes in seven key areas across all our businesses; carbon emissions, gender diversity, employee engagement, modern slavery and community giving. We also consider other material sustainability issues that are specific to relevant industries and stakeholders.
