HOW WE INVEST
Bestport Capital is led by a team of accomplished investment professionals, each with a proven track record of successfully investing in private companies in the lower mid-market.
The team source the opportunities and subject each to detailed analysis and a rigorous approval process to ensure they select the best opportunities in which to invest. In addition to the expertise of the team and its Advisory Board, Bestport will also work together with specialist due diligence providers to assist in the appraisal of the associated risks and opportunities in each prospective investee company.
Each investment is led by two Partners who sit on the investment committee. On completion of the investment one of the Partners will assume a Board position and will work in close partnership with the management team throughout the holding period, providing broad business experience whilst adhering to strong corporate governance in order to help shape the strategy of the business and support its continued development through to successful exit.

“Bestport has been a fantastic partner to work with. They provide great advice at Board meetings and have been actively involved in growing the business over the last three years. They have been supportive of the management team at critical points on the Dot Net journey and encouraged the business to strive for increased growth which helped us achieve a very successful exit.”
Paul Cosgrave, CEO Read case study
“Julian understood our business model from the outset and has encouraged us to lift our horizons which has already seen us surpass our original goal. As with any smaller company, we have had to jump a number of hurdles and Julian has been incredibly supportive throughout with advice and guidance in growing the business and in developing the management team and the strategy”
Dominic Gaynor, CEORead case study

Lars Pedersen, CEORead case study
“Julian has always understood the business from a customer perspective, appreciated the challenges the people in our business face, embraced the unique culture we have created here at Virgin Wines and brought a marketing based appreciation to the Board rather than one purely based on the numbers which has been both refreshing and invaluable for everyone involved”
Jay Wright, CEORead case study
