The name Synova is derived from the Greek word for ‘partnership’ reflecting an approach that has been at our core since the beginning.

Our success in developing lifelong partnerships is evidenced by the quality of relationships we have built and maintained, with founders and their wider teams, as well as through the group of long-standing global blue-chip investors who have entrusted us to invest and manage their capital since 2007.

We are an innovative growth investor providing bespoke solutions for shareholders through buy-outs, buy-ins, and crystallisation events in both majority and minority transactions. We typically invest between £15m and £50m into companies valued between £30m and £150m.

We are currently investing our fourth generation £365m fund, raised in 2019, which continues to focus on our core sectors. Performance since our launch has generated higher returns for investors than any other UK private equity firm; which has been reflected in Synova being awarded ‘UK Private Equity House of the Year’ four out of the past seven years.
