Empathetic
investors


Our aim is to support your business to achieve its full potential. We can bring our own entrepreneurial experience to help you face the hurdles and opportunities that confront growing firms, but we recognise that management teams know their businesses best and we will not step in unnecessarily.

Acting with honesty, integrity and fairness


CGE has an open, collaborative working style. We will always value integrity and fairness over short-term financial gain.

We hope to work with management teams who share these values.
