One Main Objective to Invest Wisely with Reece Investments

Do one thing
& do it well

Reece Investment is a global growth equity investor which targets distinctive market-leading companies with the potential for expansion.

Find great companies
& make them better

We invest in sectors to tailor value creation that support long-term growth and partner with leading entrepreneurs to deliver long-term value.

Our Strategy
Core to our strategy is to identify and invest in well-positioned companies and partner with management teams to create growth through sustained revenue and earnings to help businesses with transformative potential and to help them scale globally.
Preferences

We typically prefer situations where the management is willing to retain a meaningful equity stake in the business. We strongly believe that by establishing a structure in which both us and key management share a common ownership stake all are motivated to the same goals and success in achieving a superior return on investment.

Typical investments include management-led buyouts, family-owned businesses where the owner is seeking liquidity or retirement, or companies that require new capital for growth.

Our Private Equity

We decided that after years of building a business into a multi-billion corporation that spans the world and employs thousands of people it was time to focus on helping other entrepreneurs to get to where we did.

Private equity has grown in popularity amongst long-term investors because returns to investors have consistently outperformed underlying public markets. As practiced by Reece Investment, private equity empowers management teams to make the changes needed to grow and improve their businesses without the pressure of quarterly earnings. We look for long-term value creation as our only goal.

Today we have two private equity platforms:

We formed Reece Investment in 2020 against what has been globally one of the worst years in history for businesses around the world. Reece Investment
is our personally funded equity platform focused on investment opportunities principally targeting investment opportunities in the United States, Canada and Europe.

Sometimes investment opportunities don’t meet our criteria or we feel too exposed and decide to pass. We have though over the years realised that some opportunities just need a different approach, hence why we decided to form In-Reece-Cap, a constantly growing syndicated fund with over 20 private investors and a pool of institutional investors who have all come together to jointly invest together with us.

What we do

We look to invest across industries in both established and growth-oriented businesses across the globe.
