1. We take our investments very seriously
Although we have a heritage of supporting the growth of companies in the real estate, media, technology, transportation and internet sectors – we aren’t fixed on industry tag.
2. Our investments go beyond the pure financials
Due diligence will always play an important part in our investment process, however, deciding which business to invest in goes beyond the pure financials.
3. Creative and intuitive approach
Aside from a huge wealth of industry knowledge and expertise, we also pride ourselves on having a more creative and intuitive approach than many others in the investment marketplace.
4. We set ourselves apart from the stereotypes of other private equity houses
Whilst we invest a minimum of 50% in the business, we firmly steer away from any draconian management style. We set ourselves apart from the “vulture culture” and “fear” stereotypes of other private equity houses. At the heart, Lake House is a partner working alongside the senior management of companies to navigate the business to the next exciting stage.
