CONSUMER & LEISURE
Consumers have never been better informed, and they’re increasingly demanding. Successful companies within the consumer and leisure sector rise to this challenge, identifying underlying category and consumer trends and applying those insights to create unique, truly differentiated services and products.
Phoenix invests in consumer and leisure businesses that are resilient to spending cycles and where we believe there’s strong potential for growth. We back the best teams in the sector and help them drive growth in their businesses.
