Business Services

The Business Services sector encompasses a wide range of sub-sectors, including transport, logistics and distribution, facilities and infrastructure management, business process outsourcing, IT services, rental services, inspection and testing, education and staffing. Whilst each is subject to its own industry dynamics, outsourcing is the key driver within the sector worldwide, generating strong organic growth and counter-cyclical trends.

Financial Services

Cinven has identified Financial Services as a sector that provides attractive investment opportunities and has created a dedicated team to focus on the sector. After 10 years of rapid growth, the Financial Services sector has been going through a period of reconfiguration since the credit crunch. This is creating attractive opportunities for Cinven as valuation dislocations emerge and institutions divest non-core assets or seek partners to raise capital.
