WE ACQUIRE SMALL PROFITABLE BUSINESSES

Mornington Partners is committed to acquiring and growing small, successful British companies.

We are free from strict investment criteria and hold periods, enabling us to make long-term strategic decisions.

We are not interested in complex financial engineering; we are focused on growing businesses through the optimisation of operations, strategy and financial management, as well as selected bolt-on acquisitions.

 

WHO WE ARE

 

Mornington Partners is a partnership of long term, strategic investors.  We are passionate about developing companies and excited about supporting successful businesses on their journey towards further growth.

We have worked together since early 2013 and have significant experience in acquiring small and medium sized businesses.
