The Partnership

Established in 1999, STAR looks for businesses or assets protected by a strong strategic position, located in Western Europe with enterprise value between €50 million and €1 billion. Certain capital intensive activities clearly demonstrate these characteristics. However, we have extensive experience in recognising and developing these qualities across the business spectrum.

We are an independent partnership, owned and managed by the senior partners and with the flexibility and capacity to make quick decisions. Our structure ensures the early involvement of the senior team and a continued focus on key decisions in each portfolio company.

Excellent track record

Over the years STAR has built up an excellent track record in value generation. The three most senior members of the team have worked together since inception and have been significantly involved in almost all STAR investments.


STAR Capital regards ESG as inextricably linked to building long-term sustainable value in our investments. This is why we have been signatories of the UNPRI since 2017. STAR has rigorous protocols in place to address Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters.

STAR Capital is also committed to supporting Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, as well as making an impact in local communities:

  • We are members of Level 20 and Out Investors
  • STAR Capital supports multiple charities, including Right to Play and Youth Experience in Sport (set up by our founder, Tony Mallin)
