Our Portfolio

We have no typical investment. Verityhurst looks at all opportunities based on their merits and fully commits to all its investments. In addition to typical buyouts and growth investments, Verityhurst also invests in:

  • public-to-private transactions
  • complex business reorganisations
  • Going public transactions
  • Management Buyouts
  • Leveraged Buyouts

Because Verityhurst is a private firm, not a fund, there are no rules or limitations to what it can invest in, how much or how little it invests, how the investments are structured, or how or when they are realised.

Verityhurst can invest in any industry, geography or deal type – it backs people and businesses it believes in. Verityhurst is not limited by artificial rules or investment periods.

Verityhurst’s investment in a business can be structured in any way imaginable, whether equity, convertible loan or normal loan – the important thing is that the investment is right for the business and its aspirations, while providing Verityhurst with the return and security it needs.

With a Verityhurst investment you are supported by all Verityhurst teams, be they real estate, marketing, management, finance, accounting, IT, HR, legal or tax.

You will also have full access to Verityhurst’s network of trusted advisers, banks and industry contacts across the world.

Verityhurst predominantly takes controlling stakes in market leading companies with high barriers to entry and strong management teams.
