NorthEdge is a leading independent lower mid-market private equity firm in the North and Midlands, investing in growing businesses with national and international reach.

NorthEdge manages over £650m of private equity funds aimed at lower-mid market buy-out and development capital transactions.

We back entrepreneurial and ambitious management teams who recognise value in having an experienced business partner alongside them to build a better business, together. Thanks to our decades of experience we understand the ups and downs of growing a business, so we keep it simple, keep the focus on shareholder value and support our people and portfolio every step of the way.

We are looking to invest typically between £5m–£100m in each business we back. Our focus is on established businesses, typically with turnover greater than £5m and profits greater than £0.5m.

At NorthEdge, it’s not just about providing capital to take a business to the next stage. It’s about building open and honest relationships, it’s about adding value through engagement and partnership, it’s about being empowered to make informed decisions quickly, and it’s about being based outside of the capital, in Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham – giving us unparalleled insight in to the regions we invest in.
