Transaction Capital actively identifies and invests in alternative asset classes, in which our best-in-class technology, proprietary data and analytics capabilities enable us to generate outstanding returns. This extends to operating unique, high-potential businesses in market sectors where historically low levels of stakeholder trust provide compelling opportunities for disruption. We partner with expert, entrepreneurial and co-invested management teams to scale, grow and position these highly specialised, digitally advantaged, and vertically integrated businesses to offer market-leading value propositions.

The Transaction Capital group’s diversified businesses are strategically relevant, operationally resilient and robustly governed, which underpin their ability to respond effectively and ethically to complex market dynamics. As trusted partners, they support their clients’ commercial viability and collaborate with their stakeholders to drive meaningful, long-term socioeconomic impact. This enhances their growth, risk and sustainability profiles and secures the group’s ability to consistently deliver exceptional shared value outcomes.
