• Returns are really good (from previous vintages) - and thus fundraising track record 
  • Had some superstar assets  (e.g., Curium)
  • Seems quite European / IB type in culture
  • Unsure on comp, but would expect it to be in line / similar to the likes of Montagu, Stirling Square etc. 

Accurate except the last part. CapVest pays very very well, above street. Way above Montagu etc who pays below street

I think this might be a bit of a troll. The CapVest people are fine - sure, there'll be sweaty times, but that comes with the business. What I know is that they're not "known" to be horrifically bad on culture or anything like that - just more or a less a standard MM PE shop.

They did used to have a reputation for being a bit "bottom feeder" on valuations, and I've seen that on processes I've worked on, but that isn't the case today and they'll pay up and run hard at an asset when they want it, and they do serious due diligence. My pet theory is that they might have gotten that reputation by the nature of assets they invest in (e.g. Karro, Natra, etc.), which are often private label or lower margin and which need a bit of operational turnaround.

They do get their hands dirty on assets and work on that operational improvement and bolt-on M&A, so there's bits to learn. They like Consumer, but branch out elsewhere too.

 

You’ll see very little if the fund guys if you’re in the portco unless you’re their head of M&A or CEO/CFO
