2021 saw Hg transform in scale and ambition.

Our portfolio of software and service champions have grown in number, in value and in size of workforce and Hg itself now feels different. Less like an investor and more like a software group: a place for businesses with aligned aims and shared challenges, where the experience and talent we hold as a group can be used to benefit each other.

2021 was a challenge for all of us but we are proud to see that the Hg group has risen to it.
