GIL Investments is a UK-based private investment firm which acquires controlling stakes in businesses and aims to support their growth over the long term. We currently manage twelve investments within our portfolio across a variety of sectors and geographies.

Since GIL’s formation in 1991 the team has worked with existing management teams in buy-outs from larger groups, acted as a responsible partner in family businesses involved in retirement sales and assisted in distressed or turnaround scenarios. Our personnel and current portfolio reflects this variety and flexibility of approach. Investment is predominantly made into UK manufacturing businesses, always in partnership with management, and always with a long-term view of the success of that investment.

The GIL team has managed investments including a FTSE350 infrastructure products group, a construction group which built the Severn Bridge, the largest fireworks manufacturer in the UK and a leading Tier One automotive components manufacturer.

We are proud of our twenty-year track record of providing entrepreneurial management teams with the opportunity to make a fresh start and to develop the potential of their businesses and are always interested in new investment opportunities.
