QPE Fund I
The Fund was raised over an unprecedented six-month period of a global pandemic with an investor base comprising some of the world’s leading endowments, foundations, family offices, philanthropic organisations and fund of funds.
The QPE team and 25-strong Ambassador network also invest significantly in the Fund, ensuring we are fully aligned with each and every investment and management team we support.
We appreciate the pressures associated with starting up and running a business, as well as the highs and lows experienced along the journey, because we’ve been there.
We seek to build enduring partnerships with like-minded ambitious teams who share our passion, energy and enthusiasm in building and growing great businesses. That’s why we invest our personal wealth alongside our partners.
We successfully raised £202m from a blue-chip investor base to invest in entrepreneur-led businesses operating across the Education, Health & Pharma and Tech Services sectors.
“We excel in supporting management teams through our value creation playbook and the embedded sector expertise of our QPE Ambassador Network who know exactly what it’s like to have walked in your shoes”
Managing Partner, QPE
The QPE Values
‘Entrepreneurial empathy’ means the ability to put ourselves in your shoes, being fair and transparent and treating everybody with respect.
Our approach requires a high level of energy and is therefore best suited for management teams looking for support to accelerate their growth strategy.
Always striving to be the best by recognising we can always improve. We support every partnership with our proven value creation initiatives.
QPE’s sector areas of focus of Education, Health & Pharma and Tech Services are naturally conducive to selecting opportunities with a positive impact especially, but not exclusively, in the social and governance areas.
QPE understands that entrenching ESG factors throughout all the stages of the investment process and portfolio management is fundamental for building long term profitable and sustainable businesses.
QPE has developed a proprietary, quantifiable ESG process which is applied systematically to every company throughout all the stages of the investment process. ESG is at the forefront of us building long term value.
