Entrepreneurial Investors

We see ourselves as entrepreneurial investors, different from other sources of business finance and notably private equity. By this, we mean that our mindset and operational style is similar to that of the management teams we work with, which helps us relate well and provide the best support at the right time for a business.
We believe this more entrepreneurial investment approach works extremely well for many mid-market businesses. Here’s what we mean by this:

Entrepreneurial Investors

  • Differ from private equity firms, not least because they have run and worked in industry themselves.
  • Independent sources of finance also separates us from many private equity firms. At Parabellum Investments there is no investment committee to go through or external investors – we simply invest money we have made from successful investments.
  • First-hand business experience. We have worked in and led companies ourselves. We understand what it takes to manage difficult situations and, if needed put a company back on track – often stepping in for a time as senior executive roles.
  • Empathise and understand what it means to take personal risks in business. Having done this ourselves, we get it – and know what challenges management teams face.
  • Record of success. We are operational investors who have made our money from helping the companies in our portfolio to succeed and grow – those who choose to work with us can take confidence from our own record of success.
