About Us

A pragmatic and approachable investment partner

RJD – a three point summary

  • We are an equity investor specialising in buyouts, buy-ins and development capital deals worth up to £50 million.
  • We invest in established and growing companies operating in specific services and consumer niches, headquartered in the UK.
  • We seek to back ambitious management teams who have a clear plan for organic and often acquisition led growth.

Why we are different

Open. Decisive. Approachable.

They’re open, honest and supportive. You work with the people who can support the key decisions directly.

Nigel English, Voyager

What our difference means to you:

  • We understand the sector you operate in: we make investments in niches where we have strong expertise
  • Because we are small and independent we can be creative and flexible
  • At least two partners are directly involved in every transaction
  • We will give you the space you need to operate and will not interfere in day to day management
  • We are hugely experienced.  The partners have an average of over 25 years of private equity experience, ensuring sensible, long term decision making.

Working together

Focusing on what we're good at
  • Management teams, vendors, intermediaries and non executives – we value every relationship.
  • We look for management teams and advisors who, just like us, are open and straightforward in communication
  • In return you’ll get the rigorous responses and deliverable commitments you’re looking for

Our funds

Funds for accelerating business growth and development

RJD understood the sector and our potential from the outset and their experience of supporting both organic and buy-and-build led growth made them the natural choice as partner for the next phase of our development.
