Reflecting on 2023

December 22, 2023

As we bid farewell to an eventful 2023, we took a moment to pause and reflect on the work we have completed in partnership with our clients to support them in appraising, building and developing high performing management teams, providing essential insights to aid their investment decisions.

Assessing Management Teams

In a tricky investment environment, one constant remains: the importance of management teams. Assessing these teams isn’t just about scrutinising CVs; it’s about deciphering the dynamics, values, and potential of the individuals steering the ship. Throughout the last twelve months, we have worked closely with our investor clients to help them evaluate and understand the management teams they are seeking to back, helping them make better informed investment decisions across a variety of sectors and jurisdictions.

Varied Sectors and Markets

Our management assessment services are suitable for any sector, any investment thesis, any geography. Assignments have spanned sectors from ad tech to accountancy, cyber security to pet food manufacture, fund administration to chemical manufacturing. At the end of the day, we are asking the question “does this team have what it takes to deliver the plan?” If not, how can we support and develop them to get there? We have assessed teams globally, from the UK to Singapore, Luxembourg to Mauritius, Cayman to Ireland.

Evolution of Our Services

As we entered 2023, our commitment to helping clients empower their management teams and enhance their investments expanded with the introduction of our Executive Coaching services. The success of an investment isn’t solely reliant on financial metrics; it’s deeply intertwined with the capabilities and potential of the individuals entrusted to lead, which is why we were excited to introduce a service that went beyond assessment and search. Our Executive Coaching further fortifies management teams, fostering leadership growth, enhancing team cohesion, and supercharging performance.

Looking forward to 2024.

As we reflect on 2023 and look forward to 2024, we remain dedicated to supporting our clients, empowering investment decisions with insights, development, and unwavering support.
