Our Investment team is fundamental to the success of our business and is split according to strategy, sector and office location. Through the collective efforts of everyone within the team, IK can build and maintain a diversified portfolio. The individuals in this team are responsible for sourcing deals, undertaking due diligence and structuring a transaction in the early stages of an investment and during active ownership, they implement performance improvement initiatives to generate significant value. All of this is achieved through careful stewardship and strong governance through a mutually respectful partnership established at the very beginning.
Integrated throughout the investment lifecycle, our Capital Markets team is responsible for leading acquisition financing for IK’s portfolio companies, capitalising on the team’s expertise in leveraged finance and private credit. The team is also responsible for managing and growing the Firm’s relationships with investment banks and credit funds.
During the active ownership period of an investment, the team maintains regular contact with the portfolio company’s management and oversees all relevant capital markets activities (add-on financing, refinancing / recapitalisation or exit financing).
