What we do

​We invest in ambitious medium-sized businesses, partnering with management teams to help build them into industry leaders.

Building leading companies

Limerston Capital is a private equity firm with over £300 million under management, and we target UK businesses valued at £50 - £175 million. 


We differentiate by providing strong operational and acquisition support to our companies through our fully-integrated and dedicated operational and investment teams.

Partnering with management teams

Limerston Capital limit the number of investments, allowing the team to dedicate significant internal resources to work with each company on its transformation.


Limerston Capital employs low initial leverage and works alongside management teams to implement immediate operational 'quick wins' to de-risk investments early after acquisition.


We then work closely with management to ensure a solid platform is in place to enable growth and execute a buy and build strategy.

Driving growth

Limerston Capital targets companies with growth potential independent of prevailing macroeconomic conditions. We invest in ongoing analysis along proprietary themes, dis-aggregating the value chains to uncover high margin niches with growth potential or where value has been overlooked.


Operational support

Operating Partners work alongside Investment Team and company management teams prior to deal completion, enabling more rapid growth post acquisition.


We provide expertise typically not available to lower mid-market businesses, partnering with management to help realise the potential of their companies through:

  1. Providing operational and commercial expertise, tools and approaches to improve performance

  2. Implementing results derived from targeted big data analytics to enhance investment returns

  3. Adding strategic expertise to support repositioning through buy-and-build growth roll-outs
