Private Equity

Unrivalled connections

We have a rich and respected heritage in private equity, working with investors, entrepreneurs and management teams over many years. Our success comes down to our connections, knowledge, heritage, scale and global outlook.

With a history of successful outcomes we have built up trusted and lasting relationships with private equity houses, with investors truly valuing these personal relationships.

Private equity clients appreciate our deep knowledge and insight of specific sectors which, combined with our debt advisory and deal origination strengths, means our advice is keenly sought by investors either looking to make new investments or seeking exits.

Clients appreciate our international footprint, and especially our strong connections with the US and Chinese markets, which allows us to stay tuned to the very latest trends and offer the best solutions.

Our depth of M&A experience also means we know how to optimise and structure private equity deals and, in a crowded market, we crucially know exactly which providers will suit which deals.

Clearwater has the ability to find the best international buyers. On the sell-side this is particularly important as it is crucial for vendors to show international reach.
