Who Are We?

Our Founder, David Hargreaves has 25 years high level experience of building and exiting businesses within the Legal, Accounting, Finance, Financial Services and Claims Management sectors.  

David is the Private Equity Investor in a wide group of companies operating in the US, UK and Australia.

David and the teams understands that the ‘baby boomer’ generation are retiring and he wanted to help some of these business owners to have a long and fulfilling retirement rather than being stuck working in their businesses.


David decided to build a £100m Group of Day Care Nurseries using a well thought through and organised acquisition strategy. He also wanted to help the owners of these businesses to enjoy their retirement and he also wanted to support the wealth creation of others by giving them the ability to invest in the Group. 

The management and consulting team is made up of high level professionals who work as a highly effective team. Our team all have similar values and as equally dedicated.
