How we work

We welcome the challenges and complexities of developing a deep understanding of each of the companies we invest in. It is through such carefully honed insights that we are able to take a contrarian view to others – we see things differently.

Once investments have been made, we do all that we can to support and drive growth in our portfolio companies.

Key aspects of Darwin’s approach are:

  • We are an entrepreneurial firm with a strong partnership approach to working with management teams.
  • We are not afraid of complexity and aim to bring creative solutions to problems.
  • We are focused on the UK but we have the international experience necessary to support overseas growth strategies.
  • Darwin’s extensive network of contacts can add significant value to our portfolio companies.
  • Darwin has an in-house investment committee enabling rapid decision making.
