our company

about us

Agathos is a London-based firm that invests in small UK-trading businesses (turnover of up to £35m) in complex and non-complex situations. Complex situations can range from succession challenges, shareholder disputes and management buy-outs to immediate growth capital requirements. We support, serve and form strong partnerships with management to help develop the business as a whole and together we work hard to ensure the business can become the best it can be. We apply the lessons of our collective experience, through hard work by identifying creative solutions to complex business situations and by taking responsibility for the projects to which we commit. We practice continuous self-improvement, take measured risks, are reliable and work hard to get jobs done.

Our investment funds come from three Family Offices, each with diverse experiences of creating growth within small UK businesses. The Family Offices we work with strongly believe in investing in UK SMEs across all industry sectors and the need to support the companies of today to feed the future economic growth of the UK.
