Who are we?
Group 46.png

EST Partners is focused on investments in the professional services sector in US and Western Europe.

We invest behind management teams with ambitious growth plans, differentiated IP and repeat customers.  We also directly co-invest alongside large private equity funds in professional services transactions where we can add value pre- and post-deal.

Our founding partners built businesses in our three areas of focus: supply chain and sustainability, regulatory compliance and IT services.

We focus on opportunities in the $270 billion management consulting market which has grown consistently over recent decades at 6% per annum.  With ongoing regulatory, political and ESG changes impacting corporates, we expect growth to continue.

 

We have a long term investment view, serve as a sounding board for management teams and assist with arranging debt, including acquisition facilities, and further equity funding for our affiliates.
