SVELLA CAN IDENTIFY HIDDEN VALUE AND HAS THE RIGHT SKILL SET TO LEVERAGE OPPORTUNITIES
By identifying hidden value and focusing on under-performing businesses that require a new entrepreneurial mindset, we have consistently generated substantial shareholder return.
SVELLA was founded by serial entrepreneurs who, as former executives of Stobart Group, have previously turned a £1m investment into a £1.6 billion diversified group across two listed companies - generating more than £7.3 billion in revenue and creating over 10,000 jobs.
We are good at investing the right level of cash to generate super returns and are experts at driving underperforming businesses. Our track record demonstrates this.
