Investment Approach

Stirling Square Capital Partners concentrates on investing in European champions with clear opportunities for transformational value creation.

Transformational Value Creation

We invest in businesses in which we identify clear value creation opportunities. We deliver value creation by transforming businesses both strategically and operationally. Options for transformation include: building local champions into international leaders through cross border acquisitions, operational re-engineering, expansion into new markets and development of new products and services.

Local Knowledge and Understanding

Through the diverse cultural backgrounds of the investment team, we maintain excellent local market contacts across Europe and have the jurisdictional expertise for undertaking complex transactions in these markets. We are proud to operate as a local in each of our target markets.

International Expansion

We pursue markets, sectors and companies with a pan-European approach, built on an international assessment of risks and opportunities. We are proud of our history in growing local champions into international market leaders. Our evaluation exercise, from which portfolio companies benefit once acquired, is supported by our investment team's knowledge of the global market place.

Partnership with Management

We seek to work in close partnership with high quality management teams in the pursuit of value creation. Friendly and open relationships with management teams are built upon mutual respect. As a firm we do not interfere in managers’ daily activities, unless required or requested; rather, we act as a source of strategic guidance for major business decisions. We are entrepreneurs ourselves and find that our outlook and aims align with those of our management teams.
