Phoenix Equity Partners is a leading private equity investor in medium-sized, UK-based companies.
We’re proud to be independent and owned by our executives. We founded Phoenix in 2001 and have successfully grown our business in the years since, managing funds provided by leading institutions from around the world, as well as by our own team. Between us, we have over 200 years of investing experience.
We back entrepreneurial teams with bold plans to build great businesses, and we thrive on the excitement and energy working with them brings.
Our principal focus is on investing in and supporting outstanding companies, across six core sectors.
Our excellent reputation reflects our shared core values:
We strive for the highest ethical standards, from our own firm and from the companies we invest in.
We have a team culture, we’re straightforward, and we’re committed to being a great business partner to everyone we work with.
We back entrepreneurs with bold plans and we give them the support they need to drive growth.
We’re creative and flexible in the ways we invest, and how we encourage innovation in our portfolio companies.
We believe in making a positive contribution to the communities in which we do business, and further afield. Members of the Phoenix team support a wide range of charitable organisations, both financially and by giving our time and expertise. Examples include:
We proudly support Eden Valley Hospice Children’s Unit, a charity close to the heart of our former colleague Helen Jones, who was tragically killed in the July 2005 London tube bombings. Eden House is Cumbria’s only children’s hospice. Visit their website >
At Phoenix, we are pleased to support Justice and Care. Their international team of human rights professionals work with governments to rescue and support victims of trafficking, slavery and other abuses. To date they have rescued and supported more than 4000 children. Visit their website >
An incredibly important charity, Prisoners’ Education Trust provides access to learning opportunities for prisoners. Their annual carol concert, which Phoenix sponsors, is always one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year. Visit their website >
