Proven investors with a shared set of values
We are a proven team of entrepreneurially minded private equity investors with experience across a range of sectors globally. Our shared values include empathy, integrity, openness and fairness.
CGE is fully independent and wholly owned by its partners.
Our investors have backed us with a flexible mandate, allowing us to tailor how we partner with management teams.
We typically hold investments for 3-5 years, however where founders / management teams are seeking a flexible, longer term partner, the investment period can be significantly longer.
Backed by experienced operators
Private equity works best when operator talent combines with investing talent. That’s why CGE was built to be more than just money, with an Operator Panel that offers proven experience of creating value across a wide range of functions.
We firmly believe that our role is to support you in the execution of your vision, because successful entrepreneurs know how to run their businesses. We will support and advise, not over-engineer, complicate or interfere. Private equity firms do not run businesses, entrepreneurs do.
