Mergers & Acquisitions

Rigby Group is one of the UK’s most prolific investors in technology and has been for the past five decades. The Group’s success is built on a unique combination of investment expertise and significant operating experience. We understand the challenges of running, growing and transforming a business, and as a wholly-owned family business we can afford to take a long term view.

Our approach is to invest in businesses and teams we believe in. Rigby Group looks to back great leaders with teams who share our core values and who want to work with us to achieve personal and company growth. Every deal differs, whether it is short term or long term, growth or development capital, majority or a minority investment, buy and build or bolt on, the only constant being that our M&A team work to deliver a win win for all parties.

Technology remains the driving force behind Rigby Group and sits at the heart of our investment strategy. In the years ahead acquisitive investment will remain a key focus and alongside organic growth of our core business.
