Insights from Pi Members on their experience:
"Pi Capital occupies a unique position in the private equity market, not only because its investor base comprises 300 of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, but also because it actively applies their talent and sector expertise to add substantial value to its investee companies."
Paul Pindar, CEO, Capita Group plc
"One of Pi’s key attractions is its ability to leverage off its investors’ combined experience and influence. Where else can you get access to such a large pool of the UK’s leading business minds, who contribute not only financial and intellectual capital, but also their ability to open key doors and make critical introductions."
Vernon Sankey, Director, Pearson Plc, Zurich Financial Services AG, Taylor Woodrow Plc
"It is very different from just giving a fund manager some money and hoping it performs. There is a serious amount of wealth and accumulated brain power in Pi’s investor base".
Dermot Smurfit, Former chairman, Smurfit (Europe)
"We are delighted that many members of Pi have chosen to invest in Englefield. We believe that the Pi members, being influential and successful, will be particularly valuable in helping identify new deal opportunities and assisting in the development of our portfolio companies."
Dominic Shorthouse, Founder and Managing Partner, Englefield Capital
"Obviously you want the investments to be successful, but you also learn an awful lot from the network."
Chris Ingram, Chairman, Ingramenterprise, Former Chairman, Tempus Group
"Pi Capital’s pragmatic approach to getting the deal done helped minimise the disruption to the Thames Clippers business. Their proactive investment style enabled them to establish a strong working partnership with management, which was be critical in maximising the opportunity prior to a successful sale of the business in 2006."
John Donaldson, Chairman, ATP International
