3i Group

3i is a British private equity group that has billions under management. For over 65 years we’ve invested in supporting people who start, grow, change and buy businesses; delivering significant power to the people we work with through our knowledge, experience and global network of relationships. Ultimately, we’re driven by our strong sense of values. We form close partnerships with the companies we invest in and we build strong relationships based on integrity, trust and mutual respect.

3i’s ability to create value in its portfolio companies has always been underpinned by the differentiated scale of its international resources, knowledge and networks.

However, we also recognise the role of specialist resource in driving superior performance. With a track record in delivering innovative value creation solutions, we have developed a highly-effective approach. Working collaboratively, our aim is simple: to give management the tools they need to build lasting capabilities and competitive advantage.
