Strategies we back

Preferred Management Team Criteria

• Spin-out teams with top-quartile investment performance

• Senior team members who have worked together for years

• A history of achievement – with the strong motivation to build a lasting franchise

• $300 million or greater first-fund potential

• Predominately US-focused investment strategies, but will consider Western European strategies

• Teams that can quickly scale assets under management

Meteor5 will consider a broad range of buyout, growth and other private equity strategies including, but not limited to, teams that focus on:

Sectors – especially specialists with deep operational experience – teams that have strong attribution to excellent returns in selected sectors and have a proven ability to implement positive changes within portfolio companies.

Country-specific or regional strategies – perhaps a senior local team seeking to leave a Pan-European private equity firm – teams that have deep relationships.

Special situations – teams that can take advantage of unique opportunities within companies undergoing change – often requiring specialized expertise. Types of special situations strategies include turnaround, restructurings, spin-offs, asset sales, or other catalyst-oriented situations.

Meteor5 will generally not invest in real estate, infrastructure or credit-related funds
