Our private equity team undertakes a structured approach to ensure due diligence is taken when assessing investments opportunities. With our internal approval processes across our various teams of experts, investments are evaluated to match our product offerings with the prevailing investor’s sentiment.

  • A strict investment criteria and rigorous screening processes, which leads us to only engage with potential portfolio companies that we believe have a clear path towards achieving our return objectives within a five to seven-year investment horizon;
  • A multi-disciplinary due diligence process, which utilizes a wealth of internal and external resources (subject matter experts, and advisory firms) that is not only focused on confirming existing value and growth parameters, but also on identifying new paths for value creation and growth;
  • Clearly articulated growth strategies, business plans, and exit road maps, that are further validated through “buy in” and alignment with our partner shareholders and the management team.

Effective board of directors oversight and governance, which is centred around a seeamless working relationship with partner shareholders and the management team, while also ensuring that there is limited interference from Arcapita into the “day to day” operations of the portfolio company.

We have two approaches to investing in private equity, the deal-by-deal approach and the funds, advisory and managed accounts approach. These two approaches are specifically designed to meet the varying needs of our investors to support them to achieve their investment goal
