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. Cinven has considerable investment expertise across the sector, complemented by a large network of industry advisers and corporate contacts. We are actively pursuing many promising investment opportunities.
