Private Equity


We invest in winning companies across the consumer sector, with clear and structurally differentiated consumer propositions. 

In addition, these companies have defensible market positions, capital-efficient business models and substantial runway for international growth, either organically or acquisitive.

This allows these companies to internally deploy capital at attractive returns over long periods of time.

By building on 3i's deep consumer sector expertise, track record and Business Leaders Network, we are able to form a differentiated view on these companies and help them succeed during 3i's ownership.

Within the Consumer sector, we focus on the following areas:

  • Multi-unit roll-out
  • E-commerce
  • Omni-channel propositions
  • Niche branded consumer goods
  • Private label
