Since TDR Capital was founded in 2002 by Manjit Dale and Stephen Robertson, the firm has been creating value by applying a high impact approach to investing in a focused portfolio of companies. We drive returns by combining ambitious operational plans for our businesses with a rigorous focus on capital preservation.
This strategy has resulted in a track record of consistent, superior returns and EBITDA growth across our portfolio.
We currently manage over €8 billion of committed capital across three European mid-market buyout funds. Please see Investor relations for further information on our funds and investors.
We seek to buy market-leading businesses that may be transformed through greater strategic and operational focus. We employ a proactive and theme-driven approach to sourcing investment opportunities, based on a firm culture which favours independent and evidence-based thinking. As a result, we typically originate investment opportunities outside the traditional sources of private equity deal flow.
We are patient in sourcing new investments and are willing to spend significant time and resources in building conviction around an investment case. This means our investment and operating team will have a clear and detailed plan for a business before acquiring it.
Operational transformation and driving upside
A key determinant of our returns and the attractiveness of an investment opportunity to us is the potential we identify to proactively transform the business through strategic repositioning, operational improvement, high-returning capital investment and accretive buy-and-build strategies.
The resources dedicated to each investment together with the scale and experience of our Operating Partner and Data Science team allows us to identify and intensively execute on value creation opportunities.
