Alcuin Capital Partners specialises in making growth capital investments and supporting management buy-outs in lower-middle market companies based in the UK. Alcuin has been supporting entrepreneurs in this segment of the market for over 25 years.

Our typical investment range is between £2 and £15 million per transaction, although our funding relationships allow us to invest more if required. We invest in buyouts, buy-ins, recapitalisations and acquisition capital opportunities, as well as providing growth or development capital.

Alcuin is a supportive lead investor with a strong preference for owner-managed businesses. We will make both minority and majority investments and are flexible in terms of transaction requirements, focussing instead on working with excellent management teams. Managing a relatively small portfolio, we are able to offer advice and support to growth businesses in many areas, including international expansion, acquisitions, re-financing and exit.

Alcuin will typically look for companies which are led by strong management teams in niche markets having supported entrepreneurs in diverse sectors including retail (coffee, doughnuts, lingerie), technology (saas software, data hosting), waste recycling (waste-to-energy), insurance (Lloyds of London), manufacturing (pest control, telecoms) and leisure (travel, hotels).
