International Network

Alliance for Global Growth

Dunedin is a member of The Alliance for Global Growth, a global network of ambitious lower mid-market Private Equity firms and the first of its kind to span Europe and North America.

Internationalisation is a primary growth strategy for the companies in which we invest. Through years of experience, we recognise that local knowledge and trusted relationships are a critically important factor in the successful internationalisation of any business. Our investee companies benefit significantly from the access to a broad network and international perspective that the Alliance provides.

The Alliance for Global Growth currently includes ten members drawn from Western Europe and the United States. In addition to Dunedin, the network includes Nordic mid-market specialist, Axcel; Finatem, a German private equity fund focused on the Mittelstand; French mid-market house Nixen; Nazca, a leading Spanish mid-market firm; and US investors Harris Preston Partners, Brentwood Associates, Stone Goff, Wincove and Silver Oak Services Partners.

International Advisory Board

The Dunedin International Advisory Board was set up to assist our investee companies with their internationalisation strategies.

The members of the Board bring with them a wealth of international experience gained across a variety of sectors. We are able to draw on their experience, knowledge and networks in order to add value to the companies in which we invest.
