Profile

Hg is committed to building businesses that change the way we all do business, through deep sector specialisation and dedicated operational support. Hg’s vision is to be the most sought after private equity investor within our sector focus, being a partner of choice for management teams and providing a rewarding environment for Hg colleagues. Hg has a clear investment approach, targeting Software and Services companies operating in “Hg clusters” growing faster than the broader economy. We primarily seek controlling equity buyout investments in businesses headquartered in Europe and North America. Hg’s objective is to pursue investment theses supporting long-term growth, leveraging its expertise working with Software and Services companies to implement initiatives designed to maximise organic expansion, as well as through rolling up fragmented sectors, over typical hold periods of approximately five years. On an aggregated basis, the Hg portfolio would represent the second largest, and fastest growing, software business in Europe. The Power of the Portfolio Hg has a unique approach and strategy, with a focus on achieving scale in tightly defined clusters of expertise. As a result we have assembled a large portfolio of companies and business models that share similar characteristics, but differ in size and maturity. This creates a natural environment for knowledge sharing, creating a network effect to drive best practices and value creation initiatives. This is why we believe in collaboration and the ‘power of the portfolio’. This scale and focus enables our businesses to benefit from being part of one larger organisation, whilst retaining their own identity.
