The Details






CD&R Fast-track Into Private Equity Programme

CD&R was founded in 1978 on a simple premise: good investments result from sound decision-making; and great businesses are built with a commitment to operational excellence. Our investments span a broad range of company sizes, from medium-sized sector champions to global industry leaders. We have invested successfully in industrial, consumer, retail, tech and healthcare-related companies, among other sectors.

Our investment decision-making process is guided by partners with deep international experience who are capable of executing the complex business transformations at the heart of CD&R’s operationally focused investment approach. We are recognized for tailoring our investment approach to our partners’ objectives and we support them to pursue strategic combinations or divestments of non-core asset.

We partner collaboratively with both listed companies, founders and family businesses, and  we see many corporations, CEOs and entrepreneurs selecting CD&R as their partner thanks to our strong reputation for trustworthiness and operational leadership. We practice investing as a craft, relying on a dedicated and cohesive team.
