NWP is passionate about building high quality, fast growing companies. We invest in or acquire established businesses with strong market positions and then finance clearly identifiable growth opportunities.
We are convinced that with experienced financial and strategic support, carefully selected and well managed small and medium companies are able outperform throughout the economic cycle. We take a geographically focussed approach, predominantly targeting the UK for platform investments and supporting rapid expansion with progressive follow-on investments. Our investment has enabled our portfolio companies to expand from the UK into Scandinavia, Continental Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas.
We invest in strong leaders and help build excellent management teams. We believe that top line revenue growth, margin enhancement and business expansion drives superior returns more than financial engineering and have provided substantial on-going expansion capital to our portfolio companies. Our eight portfolio companies have completed over 20 bolt-on acquisitions with many more in progress.
