We have three major objectives when making an investment: to provide sufficient funds and time to allow the business to reach its full potential; to support and help entrepreneurs build their companies; and to enable our investors to achieve an appropriate return.
Palamon Capital Partners was established in 1999 as an independent professional partnership, wholly owned and operated by its partners.
Our role is to help recognise opportunities for businesses where these components are achievable but may not yet be a reality.
