Yorkway Partners is an independent boutique investment firm, founded by Paul Batchelor and Michelene Hart. Yorkway has been working with businesses and professional investors since 2009 and has successfully provided growth capital or succession planning solutions to a range of business owners in that time. The Principals have co-invested in each investment.
Following the success of Yorkway Partners, in 2014 we established Yorkway Equity Partners to offer sophisticated investors the opportunity to invest in high quality, growth companies alongside Yorkway, on a deal-by-deal basis. Our first investment was made in April 2015, with over $10 million invested into BMT Taxation Depreciation on behalf of Yorkway investors.
Yorkway Partners works with the owners and management of high quality businesses to provide solutions that support their growth plans and succession needs. With our unique blend of business and investment experience and extensive business and investor networks we offer a partnership approach that we call Smart Capital – more than just money. It’s a powerful combination of experience, strategic support and growth capital to help businesses to grow and reach their full potential.
Capital is drawn from internal resources and a consortium of high net worth individuals, family offices and institutions, depending on the individual investment opportunity.
Yorkway has successfully originated, structured and completed ten investments in businesses with a total enterprise value circa $1 billion. Our investee companies operate across a range of industries – employing over 700 people.
