Private Equity

Approach

With an investment track record of over 70 years, we are proud of our heritage in backing world class companies. We have c. 55 investment professionals across offices in eight countries and our portfolio operations have a presence in over 90 countries. 

Partnering for international growth

We invest in companies in Europe and North America with an EV typically between €100m - €500m and international growth potential.

Access to both 3i’s balance sheet and external capital allows us significant flexibility in how we finance deals and the length of our investment hold period.

We focus on four core sectors: Business and Technology Services, Consumer, Healthcare and Industrial. In each we have a proven track record and a deep international network of contacts.
