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 predominately Northern European headquartered businesses, though such companies will often have a global footprint and customer base.
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.
Hg has led over 100 investments in the software and services sector during the last 25 years. This focus means we have developed an institutional expertise and a deep understanding of the markets and businesses in which we invest.
