Thematic focus

The increasing application of technology, software innovation and the use of data have fundamentally transformed the way companies operate. This has led to the emergence of new business models that disrupt traditional value chains by driving efficiencies in processes. Through our deep industrial knowledge, we understand how technology impacts different industries and back companies capitalising on change to create new opportunities.

Our approach to investing is thematic, which means that we invest in business that serve multiple end user markets, but which are united by common business model characteristics:

  • B2B software, data and services businesses using enabling technologies to address a mission critical need.
  • Provide (a combination of) differentiated expert services, data and software solutions.
  • Generate a demonstrable improvement in productivity or efficiency to their customers.

Strong partnership and collaboration with management

Having strong relationships and working collaboratively with management teams is fundamental to our approach. This means we are often picked as the partner of choice, particularly when maximizing price is not the only consideration. This may include situations where the vendor is reinvesting heavily in the transaction, or where the management team is a “buyer” alongside us.

Such relationships are founded on a belief that working with Volpi will allow long term value to be maximized, drawing on our team’s domain knowledge and experience, competitive positioning, experience of growth investing, and core values. Together, we help management take their business to the next level.

We place great importance on the alignment of interests, which means that management always become co-owners of the company. We value fairness, and structure investments tailored to what is important to the management team.

Internationalisation & buy and build

We support companies with an ambition to internationalise and/or acquire and integrate other smaller companies with complementary characteristics. Our portfolio companies draw on our collective experience in executing over 100 add-on acquisitions in previous investments. We work alongside management teams as a partner in the execution of acquisitions and rapid international expansion, helping them navigate changing markets and capture growth opportunities.

This starts with setting strategic direction to drive the growth agenda, enhancing the team and business infrastructure where required, and capitalising on consolidation opportunities in fragmented markets. Volpi always seeks to build long term enterprise value, providing exit opportunities through the transformation of businesses to offer strategic value to trade buyers.
