Our ownership and management structure is designed to achieve alignment between ourselves, our investors and our investee companies.
We aim to create partnerships which last, with the same long-term horizon as we maintain for our investment decisions. Some of our investors have been with us for two decades.
The Founders remain heavily invested in the Arisaig funds but the firm is now run on a day-to-day basis by a group of Partners who, together, own 30% of the firm. They are led by Managing Partner, Rebecca Lewis. All current Partners have been with Arisaig for around a decade and have personal investments in the funds which are a significant portion of their own wealth.
The percentage owned by the Partners will gradually increase over the next decade, over which time more senior personnel are expected to join the partnership group. The Founders’ family trusts will own 30% of Arisaig Partners in perpetuity.
“A successful investment company must define its purpose and ensure all stakeholders are aligned. Getting this right creates a formidable bond tying consumers, investee company management, Arisaig employees and partners, and our shareholders together in a business that can stand the test of time.”Rebecca Lewis, Managing Partner
