Partnering with you

Through Global Family Partners, you can directly access a unique network of families, proprietary deal flow, analysis, strategies and execution capabilities. Partnership is at the heart of everything we do.

Long term partners for business owners

The families in the GFP network have owned businesses for many years, and we take that same long-term approach to investing.

We look for businesses that generate attractive returns, where we can partner with management teams and founders long term. This sets us apart from private equity funds that need to exit investments regularly and return cash to investors in a short period of time.

Compared to traditional private equity funds, our ability to complete a deal is swift: we lack bureaucracy and have direct relationships with families.

Trusted partners for families

We build one-to-one, longstanding relationships with our families, based on integrity and confidentiality. We introduce families to one another, connecting them around the globe. We offer families an unrivalled network of political and governmental connections and a reputation for getting things done.

The strength and breadth of our team also makes us unique. Our sector advisors work alongside the businesses we invest in, helping develop them further through insightful advice.

We are niche and independent, yet provide an institutional rigorousness to due diligence, documentation, reporting and ongoing monitoring of our direct investments.

All of our investments are direct deals, sourced either from the families we represent or through our Global Family Partners network.

We co-invest alongside our families in our proprietary direct investments, focusing on mid-market companies with a Transaction Value of €25 to €250 million.

We also help families manage their existing portfolio of direct investments by providing a hands-on approach and expert advice, usually by taking a board seat.


Our strategic family angle differentiates us. We offer families a platform to connect across the world for direct family-to-family trade and investment. We also provide instant access to a global network in terms of political and governmental connections and local knowledge.



Families or business owners may wish to dispose of existing holdings and investments in complete confidence. We can arrange private sales discretely through our extensive family network.



We can arrange introductions to suitable partners, such as to other family groups to provide capital and add value. We do this swiftly and in total confidentiality, thanks to our established networks and direct relationships with decision makers at the family level.
