Traditum Investment Philosophy

Because of the way we match our investors with carefully selected companies across a range of sectors, we always make sure any investment is accompanied by extraordinary experience, insight and expertise.

We can invest for the whole journey, through multiple funding rounds. We are uniquely placed to work with businesses through the investment life cycle from proof of concept to profitability and beyond.

We work with management teams to leverage our expertise, networks and that of our prestigious investor group, to add value through access to new contacts, markets and talent.

Our Private Equity Platform

We invest in more than just equity. We back ambitious people with flexible funding to fuel growth. We are looking to make long-term investments and add value to the Board.


Our tailored discretionary service offers investment choices across Asset-backed, Traditional Private Equity and High Growth opportunities.

Execution Only

The Execution Only service (EO), enables our clients to invest on a deal-by-deal basis, alongside experienced entrepreneurs who know how to identify companies that have the potential to grow rapidly and realise value.


Our Vintages are how we name our bespoke-focused funds. We create our Vintages alongside a small selection of people with a common reason to invest.

How We Choose to Invest

At Traditum we carefully select investment opportunities which match the interests of our investors. The first step in that process is relatively informal and we call it a Sniff Test. We consider the basic opportunity, deciding whether it fits with our ethical standards, and whether it’s a sector that we feel we have sufficient investors to fulfil the needs of this opportunity. We then move into a more detailed assessment of the market to ensure it is likely to grow and deliver the returns that we would expect.

Our diligence process has been designed to ensure we fully understand the business, both to enable us to work effectively with that business post-investment and also, crucially, to be able to confidently assure our investors that we rigorously understand how the business operates.

We believe in building trust, relationships and partnerships so clients and businesses can be assured that we always work to high safety standards with total transparency. We want businesses we invest in to be successful and their success is what drives our investors too.

Our Investment Classes


Investments in more mature companies with proven management teams and a track record of sustainable revenue and profit growth, but may need help to fund major expansions, acquisitions or other investments. We provide essential growth equity.

High Growth

High Growth investment is where we take an equity investment in a young company, usually in a less mature sector with exceptional potential. Typically, this kind of investment helps entrepreneurs commercialise a proof of concept by investing in people, overheads and/ or equipment to quickly bring a business to profitability. Early-stage investment demands specific ongoing support, and although the risks are higher, so too are the potential returns.

We will consider most deal types including:

Management Buyouts (MBOs) where a management team is backed by Private Equity to acquire their business.

Management Buy-ins (MBIs) where an experienced business leader can buy into a business alongside the existing management team with the support of Private Equity; and

Bolt-on acquisitions or mergers for our existing investments.
